Run Windows-based Programs on a Mac
» News: Cryptographic Update for WineBottler 22.214.171.124
Turn Windows-based programs into Mac apps – WineBottler packages Windows-based programs like browsers, media-players, games or business applications snugly into Mac app-bundles.
Your company provides you with a login, mail, calendar and contacts that only work on certain browsers?
You quickly want to test your websites in Windows-based browsers.
You want to play games, that are not ported to OS X?
Your online trading platform or accounting tool only runs on Windows?
Your audio book player is not available on OS X?
No need to install emulators, virtualizers or boot into other operating systems – WineBottler runs your Windows-based programs directly on your Mac.
This is possible thanks to a Windows-compatible subsystem, which is provided by the great OpenSource tool Wine.
WineBottler does Automated Installations:Select from a wide range of software for which WineBottler offers automated installations. It is as easy as hitting 'Install' – and WineBottler will leave you with a neat app on your desktop. WineBottler does not come with the programs themselves, but with scripts, that take care of downloading, configuring and installing everything into an app for you.
WineBottler can pack your .exe into an Mac .app ...Double-click your .exe or .msi and convert it into an app with WineBottler. You can run the generated app like every other program on your Mac. For advanced users, WineBottler gives you a selection of options: install special dependencies and even turn your .exe into a self-contained app - that is an app, that contains everything to run it... even on other Macs. Porting to OS X never was easier ;).
Find out more - have a look at the Documentation.
... or just run that .exe.You don't care about generating an app and just want to run it? Double-click the .exe, choose 'Run directly' and Wine will run it in a generic environment.
Enjoy, it's free!Like Wine, WineBottler is free software. We've made it out of our own needs and now we share the result. If you are happy with it, you can keep the project rolling by sending a small Donation.

SupportIf you have questions installing a certain program, please have a look at the documentation or at appdb.winehq.org first. winehq.org is the hub for all info about wine. It contains notes, hints and tricks to install all major programs.
winehq.org is NOT affiliated with WineBottler in any way. So please do NOT post bug-reports or questions about WineBottler there - write an eMail to mikesmassivemess(at)kronenberg.org and if time permits, i'll try to get your exe running.
WineBottler is my hobby and it is free, so please understand, that I can't give you a one-to-one support. If you are looking for a Wine version with great dedicated support: Note down this Promo Code: 'TANGENT' (for a 30% discount) – then head over to CrossOver.
Winehq Macos Download
I wanted to run a Windows machine on my Mac OS X. So obvious choice was using WineHQ. Ideally, it should have been 1/ Download, 2/ Install and 3/ Run. However, it is never that simple, isn’t it!?
macOS Catalina (10.15.1)
iMac (21.5-inch, Late 2102)
1. I wanted to use HomeBrew, so I ran this command from https://brew.sh/ and downloaded needed components
2. I updated ~/vi .bash_profile and added
3. I downloaded version 5.3 from https://dl.winehq.org/wine/source/5.x/
4. Seems like this is a known bug https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48689 and the fix has been provided here: https://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git/blobdiff/76606eaea034c51a73190aac92e75d8b20e82164..35c223850e1bc9e8f97bfaf403bfabca69db3447:/dlls/ntdll/locale.c
5. Edited wine-5.3/dlls/ntdll/locale.c accordingly (though the line numbers did not match)
6. Then I ran configure again successfully
Took a while, but was successful.
7. I fixed some X11 issues
8.Moment of truth:
9. I had to install more packages that WineHQ UI asks for a got few Mac OS X pop-up:
10. I went to System Preferences and allowed the executable by clicking “Allow Anyway”
11. Finally, it worked.
The Standard Instructions That Did Not Work
1. Downloaded WineHQ pkg for MacOS X from https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html
2. It asked to me have the latest XQuartz installed. So I downloaded XQuartz 2.7.7 dmg from https://www.xquartz.org/releases/XQuartz-2.7.7.html. It installed successfully.
3. I tried reinstalling Wine again and it moved ahead this time. I chose 64-bit support (optional) while installing.
4. However, when I ran it from the Applications folder, I for an error that it needs to be updated and lead me to this page: https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT208436
Making WineHQ Work on MacOS Catalina
1. I wanted to use HomeBrew, so I ran this command from https://brew.sh/.
2. I followed instructions from https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS/Building and downloaded version 5.3 from https://dl.winehq.org/wine/source/5.x/
3. I found this link and started following instructions: https://apple.stackexchange.com/questions/373851/how-to-get-wine-working-on-catalina. So I updated the command:
4. I wanted to use HomeBrew, so I ran this command from https://brew.sh/.

6. I updated ~/vi .bash_profile and added
7. Opened a new window which had the path updated
8. I ran configure again successfully
Took a while, but was successful.
9. I had to fix some X11 links.
10. Moment of truth
11. Seems like this is a known bug https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=48689 and the fix has been provided here: https://source.winehq.org/git/wine.git/blobdiff/76606eaea034c51a73190aac92e75d8b20e82164..35c223850e1bc9e8f97bfaf403bfabca69db3447:/dlls/ntdll/locale.c
12. Edited wine-5.3/dlls/ntdll/locale.c accordingly (though the line numbers did not match), deleted locale.o and restarted

and via a Mac OS X pop-up:
14. I went to System Preferences and allowed the executable by clicking “Allow Anyway”
