Windows On Mac :: Use Darwine To Run An Exe

Jan 2, 2011

I am trying to use darwine to run an exe, but am running into a problem. I click the exe and it loads up with darwine, however it is an exe that doesn't just run, but needs to be installed. When I try to click the installer location, it doesn't let me click install. I run vmware, and can install it with that, however, I'm trying to make it simple for a friend on a mac to run 1 silly program that she needs.

Applications :: Darwine 1.1.7 + Notepad++ On Leopard

Jan 9, 2009

I would like to use the Notepad++ on my new Mac, I found out (after a lot og Googling) that I need and Mac version of the Wine - the Darwine to be able to run it. So I got the 1.1.7 version of the Darwin form HERE After the installation I have the Darwine folder inside the Applications and it contains:

- Sample WineLib Applications
- Wine.Bundle
- WineHelper

Afterwards I got the Notepad++ from HERE. I downloaded the executable file (npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe) Now - my understand it about how to run the Notepad++ correctly is following:

1) Run the Wine.Bundle
2) Click "Choose the application"
3) Do so

- But just I can not choose the "npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe".
- If I just run the npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe direcly via clickung on it - it crashes
- If I try to run the WineHelper - it also crashes ....

Applications :: Run Darwine 0.9.27 On Mac (OSX 10.5.6) For Emulation Purposes / X11?

Feb 16, 2009

I am trying to run Darwine 0.9.27 on my Mac (OSX 10.5.6) for emulation purposes, however it does not work. I downloaded X11 from the Xquartz project to make sure I was up to date with X11, however that did not solve the problem. For example, here is the error I get when I try and run Knytt, a compact, free Windows game: err:module:attach_process_dlls "gdi32.dll" failed to initialize, aborting err:module:LdrInitializeThunk Main exe initialization for L"Z:\Users\Banjaloupe\Games\Knytt\Knytt.exe" failed, status c0000005

I think the problem is with X11, since I also cannot run GIMPshop, which I know needs X11. However, I have no experience at all using X11 in the first place, which is why I am quite stumped. Of course, the real issue could be with Darwine, or some other incompatibility I'm missing.

PowerPC :: Burning - Running Several Programs

Nov 5, 2006

What I used to love about my Powerbook G4 is that it's pretty much silent, unless I happen to be burning something, or running several programs at once. However, this appears to be a thing of the past, as I've begun to notice that the fan is now permanently whizzing, and while it's not loud, it's anything but silent. This happens constantly, while I'm running minimal programs, and while my computer is sitting on my desk, not on any soft surfaces.

OS X :: Java Programs No Longer Running After Downgrade?

Jun 15, 2010

The other day I had an issue with Mac OS, not sure what, but long story short I reinstalled/downgraded to Leopard. I have since installed all the Software Updates and such, but have not upgraded to Snow Leopard. (I'd had alot of issues with it, figured I'd stay downgraded for awhile)

In any case, I was able to download and run Java files no problem on Snow Leopard, but no longer can. It's not a ONE Java file problem.

Software :: IMac Freezing When Running Few Programs?

Aug 27, 2009

I have a iMac(it is an older one but I forget when I bought it) it has OS X 10.4.11, and 1 GB ram. I have 30 GB of free HD space.

Normally, I run Aol Desktop, Firefox, iTunes and sometimes Microsoft Word. But recently while browsing the internet the Mac will stop working. The music will continue to play and the mouse will still move but everything else stops working. The only way I have been able to fix it is to hold the power button for a couple of seconds.

Also, while trying to zero out my free space the available HD space on my computer went to 0 and the Disk Utility said it would take something like 1 million hours to finish so I skipped that step and when it finished my memory was restored.

ITunes :: Library Not Usable After Running Utility Programs

Dec 19, 2010

I am running Windows XP on my desktop. I have been using Itunes for years and it has worked fine till about two weeks ago. I had been having issues with my computer being very slow so I began using several freeware programs to clean up my computer. I used Repair Doctor, AVG PC Analyzer, PC Pitstop, Glary Utilities, and Advanced System Care. I discovered that ITunes was no longer usable after using AVG PC Analyzer. I have gone back and reversed all the changes that I made using PC Analyzer and have also used Windows System Restore to go back to a time previous to most of the clean up activities. I have uninstalled ITunes several times and then reinstalled using various combination of installing ITunes and QuickTime. QuickTime is working fine, but ITunes is not working. I click on the ITunes icon and nothing happens.

OS X :: Finding Programs Running In Activity Monitor. Speeding Up Leopard?

Mar 19, 2010

My Mac is noticeably slower so I'm looking to clean it up before I try a clean install on the hard drive. I found a Kodak printer program and an HP printer program both of which I deleted from applications, but both of which are chewing up 500MB of process memory, and when I force a quit they just pop open again a second later.Question:

Where are these programs hididng? How do I kill them?

Any other tricks to speed my Mac up (I verified permissions already).

PowerPC :: Run Darwine On OS X 10.4.11

May 30, 2010

I'm having a hell of a time trying to run Darwine on this ol' eMac. I installed Xcode so that I could use MacPorts to install Freetype because it seems to be required for Darwine. So, every time I attempt to run a program, it goes through its font checks, and afterward, it tells me the following:


Failed to open the service control manager. err:module:load_builtin_dll failed to load .so lib for builtin L"msxml3.dll": dlopen /Users/Lydia/Desktop/Darwine/Wine.bundle/Contents/bin/../lib/wine/, 2): Library not loaded: /sw/lib/libiconv.2.dylib Referenced from: /Users/Lydia/Desktop/Darwine/Wine.bundle/Contents/bin/../lib/wine/ Reason: Incompati wine: Unhandled alignment at address 0x0 (thread 0009), starting debugger... wine: wineprefixcreate failed while creating'/Users/Lydia/.wine'. wineserver: could not save registry branch to /Users/Lydia/.wine-77LUdN/user.reg : No such file or directory / Am I doing something wrong, or is Darwine just never going to work for me?

Applications :: Running Windows 7 With Boot Camp And Parallels 5.0

May 13, 2010

I finally made the switch from PC to Mac buy selling my HP laptop and desktop computers and buying the new MacBook Pro. However, I have licenses for Creative Suite 4 for Windows and still need to run it on my Mac using Boot Camp and/or Parallels until I can afford to jump to CS5 for Mac (this MBP took a big chunk of my cash). I'd like to run Windows using Boot Camp AND Parallels - Boot Camp when I need all system resources and Parallels when I need to hop over to Windows to type a Word document or something quick (got Office 2007 for Windows too).

Can I use both Boot Camp and Parallels with one serial number for Windows 7? If so, how do I install? Would I install Windows on Boot Camp or Parallels first? If anyone has some guidance for installing one copy of Windows 7 on both applications

OS X :: Mac 10.4.2 Tiger / Darwine / Pivot / X11

I really want Pivot. But I have a Mac. So I downloaded Darwine for my PowerPc based Mac. It said I needed X11. I searched the internet for free downloads. I got one. I'm now worried that if I install X11, I may accidentally reinstall the whole computer and potentially lose all my files/apps. Will I reinstall my computer and lose files/apps if I install X11?

Laptops :: Occasional Video Editing - Can Handle Running At Least 5 Of Adobe Programs At Same Time?

Feb 3, 2010

I have done alot of research. I have never owned a mac. I haven't used on since I graduated from school 5-6 years ago for graphics. I have no desire if I do get one to boot xp on it I find the mac os to look more clean(yeah if that makes since) My current laptop is a sony vaio. I mean I know its not strong enough to handle the adobe programs, I can barely run flash cs4 and photoshop cs4 at the same time. My specs on my current sony vaio which I got like 2 and a half years ago is 0.99 gigs of ram/1.60 ghz/ginuwine intel (r) cpu. I know its nothing compared to today and with more work from clients I need something that can handle running at least 5 of the adobe programs at the same time with the internet browser opened and maybe a mp3 player like jet audio playing some tunes to get some serious work done occasional video editing but nothing too crazy..

It will only be a couple of games and music software, but i dont have the OSX version, and i dont really want to buy a new version. I'd rather get a free program that does the same thing as Paralells, but if there is any other paid software that is reliable id like to know.
