wine cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\filename.exe (mac)

Post by localcelebrity » Fri Nov 23, 2018 4:32 pm

I'm trying to open an .exe on a Mac via wine. When I open with wine and click go nothing happens - the file doesn't even open and there's no errors. I tried opening it via cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/foldername/filename.exe and wine filename.exe in Terminal I get the error down below.

This is the first and only .exe I've encountered a problem with. I've used wine with TVPaint and NotePad and have had no problems at all. The .exe operates smoothly on a normal Windows computer so I don't think it's the file itself.

I tried opening it via cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/foldername/filename.exe and wine filename.exe
"cd" means Change Directory, the argument has to be a folder.
The commands should be:

Code: Select all

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/foldername/            #<-- without filename.exe
wine filename.exe

When I tried that I got this error

-bash: cd: /Users/MyName/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/foldername: No such file or directory

and

wine cannot find 'filename.exe'

That is a clear error. The location doesn't exists.
If there are weird characters in the name, use single quotes around the name.

Code: Select all

cd '/some location/ with/weird/<>\"/characters/'
