Download Wine for Mac - Free and open source implementation of the Windows API designed to help you seamlessly and effortlessly run Windows programs on your Mac. Additionally, you can use the Darwine team build which can be downloaded from the Darwine page. If not, how could I run Fidelity Active Trader Pro on the iMac? Do you recommend using Virtual PC (I hear is very slow) or Darwine (I hear they made a version for the new Mac's with the Intel Chips, is this true?)? I intend on purchasing the new 20' iMac Intel Core Duo by the end of this week. Thanks, Packgo Mac Mini 1.42Ghz Mac OS X (10.4.5).
Darwine Editor's Review
Binary packages are in the process of being built, and will appear soon at their respective download locations. Wine 5.19 Released. October 9, 2020. The Wine development release 5.19 is now available. What's new in this release: Wine Mono engine updated to 5.1.1, with WPF text formatting support. Darwin 6.0.2 x86 install image.Darwin is the BSD-based core of Mac OSX. Darwin 6.0.2 corresponded roughly to Mac OSX 10.2.Darwin was released under the Apple.Darwine is a Mac OS X port for the *NIX implementation of the Windows API, which was originally called WINE.
WINE is a recursive acronym, which means WINE Is Not an Emulator. This is true, because WINE doesn't emulate an x86 CPU and it doesn't run Windows software into a virtual machine. It does however, provide a Windows API over the *NIX family of operating systems and the X window server.
The application comes with some Windows applications. This program is recommended just for testing, because it's still under active development and the number of the programs that are supported isn't great.
In fact, just a few programs run without any trouble under Darwine, because it can't install Windows software properly. The problems start right at the installation wizard. I tried installing wizards like Nullsoft Install System, Install Shield, or Inno setup and it failed to install programs that use these installation programs. It also fails to launch most applications that are not distributed within an installation program.
Darwine is useless, when it comes to recognizing the libraries required to work well. For example, it required the freetype library greater than or equal to 2.0.5. I have compiled and installed the latest version of that library 2.1.10, and it didn't recognize it.
Darwine Download MacPluses: it can run Windows software without having Windows installed, it has a nice task panel, which can be used to force an application to terminate. It's a free alternative to the commercial product that is also based on WINE, CrossOver.
Drawbacks / flaws:
Download Darwine For Macthe list of the applications that is currently supported by Darwine is quite thin. I didn't manage to run Windows programs that work flawless under Linux+WINE. Compiling WINE from its sources in order to run it under Mac OS X might be a better solution now.
In conclusion: if you would like to use this program for testing reasons, then you can go ahead, but don't expect too much from Darwine.
version reviewed: 0.9.12
