64 Bit wine needed

Post by Huggybear0 » Tue Aug 27, 2019 9:13 am

Hi Everyone

I have recently updated my mac to Catalina but i now cannot add a particular program anymore. As i understand it is because i need wine to work with 64 bit. I have tried some of the downloads but us does not work.

Do any of you have suggestions that i could try please.

Thanks for you help in advance

Rob

Same situation here.

Will there be a 64bit version of wine?

macOS Catalina has removed all 32Bit support from macOS so wine at percent can't be fully supported at the moment.
wine64 will function but only allows running pure 64Bit windows applications so it's almost useless for most users.

If you really want to still have wine natively on macOS you must downgrade to Mojave.
I'm not upgrading to Catalina for the foreseeable future for this reason.


Also Catalina isn't officially launched yet, it's not even GM yet upgrading to a beta release is never advisable for any OS
