64-bit Wine on Mac?

Post by morshu9001 » Sat Jun 28, 2014 9:25 pm

I can't find any recent posts about this. Is it possible to compile Wine in 64-bit mode for Mac (or even Linux for that matter)? The Wine used in PlayOnMac and WineBottler is 32-bit, which suggests that it can't be done.

I tried to do it following the official WineHQ guide (http://wiki.winehq.org/Wine64), and I got really far before my compiler saw 2 syntax errors in a source file then stopped. Then again, that happens every time I try to compile anything written in C++ instead of C :lol:

Thanks for the link, dimesio. That's disappointing :/

"OSX overwrites a CPU register that Win64 applications expect to remain untouched. Apple can’t change the ABI because there are already 64 bit OSX apps that expect things to work that way. A potential workaround may be to run Wine inside a CPU emulator like qemu, but that is anything but easy."
