Running .exe on mac

Post by astonmartin » Thu Jan 09, 2020 4:02 pm

Repeatedly, whenever I try to open a .exe file through wine, it says "there is a serious issue with iexplorer.exe and it needs to to close." So I went to terminal and downloaded winetrick through homebrew. Now I dont know how to run the .exe file from there, I tried saying "cd .wine/downloads/filenamehere/.exefilenamehere, however it went to a ">" prompt and I didn't know why.

I just need guidance on how to open a .exe file on mac. Help?

Your not giving much information to work with, you should provide the wine version you were using and what program you were trying to run.

When you created your wine prefix did install gecko and mono when prompted or your wine prefix is considered broken
