I am trying to run an exe made on Mac 10.14 with wine but it gives me the error:

You need to provide additional information.

What version of wine is installed?

Do you have security software installed?

This error seems strange considering I primary boot Mojave since it’s launch and never had this error

Hello, Gcenx.

The version I have installed is Wine 5.0.
For the security software, I use CleanMyMac X and Avast.

I believe this has to do with the PyInstaller version from looking at different forums in Linux OS.
But for me, some .exe files work and others don't.

Sometimes antivirus/security software can incorrectly flag some of wines provided files, but I don’t think that’s the case this time.

I’m not sure why your thinking PyInstaller is an issue here, was the exe created using this?

You could provide terminal output from an attempting to run said exe?

This is the output of the exe in terminal:
0020:err:display:macdrv_ChangeDisplaySettingsEx No matching mode found 1680x1050x32 @60!
002c:fixme:ver:GetCurrentPackageId (0x21fd10 0x0): stub

The error you provided seems more that it’s a full screen application and is trying to get the display resolution to something your display doesn’t support
