Run 64bit Wine 1.9.7 on your Mac OSX system with Wineskin WS9Wine

You can now run 64bit WineHQ Wine 2.21 on your Mac OSX system with Wineskin WS9Wine keep in mind this is kinda sorta beta but fun none the less...

Update 01/06/2018

I updated the link to the latest Wine Staging 2.21 OSX 64 bit release...

I just repackaged for Wineskin, the 64bit engines taken from here...

I made a test installing 7-zip x86 and 7-zip x64 and it install them automatically in their appropriate folders as happens in windows x64 O.S.:

Well, seeing the launch screen of FO4 is definitely some progress. :-)

How do I use this? Can you give me some pointers?

Hello Michael,

Download the Wine Staging 2.0 x86 64 bit installer and then install it, you will need to run wine from a terminal and point wine to the .exe that you want to run.

Hello Tom,

The tar.gz file has been correctly installed (in my $HOME/wine64) and this directory has been added to $PATH : when I execute 'type wine' from a terminal, I have wine64/bin/wine

The 7z1604-x64.exe file has been downloaded in $HOME.

When I launch 'wine 7z1604-x64.exe' from a terminal, I have the following result :
fixme:winediag:start_process Wine Staging 2.6 is a testing version containing experimental patches.
fixme:winediag:start_process Please mention your exact version when filing bug reports on
fixme:file:SetDefaultDllDirectories (c00): stub

And a window appears with the essage : The installation requires Windows x64

Any idea ?

Hello Eddy,

Can you try installing the 32-bit version of 7-Zip and see if it installs correctly?

Hello Tom,

It's ok for the 32-bit version (of 7-zip)

I updated this page and now link to the latest Wine Staging release, version 2.21 , When you have some free time you should upgrade to the 2.21 release. Their was a tonne of fixes between the 2.6 and 2.21 release.

Thanks for the update.

Unfortunately, even with this release, the result is always the same : The installation requires Windows x64
