Can Wine Run NBTExplorer .exe or .msi?

Post by JohnForte » Thu Oct 08, 2020 7:17 pm

I can not get the .exe or .msi of NBTExplorer 2.8.0, the latest release, to run on my iMac with Wine 5.0 Stable. I am using macOS 10.14.6. I include here the link to the version of NBTExplorer that I am trying to run, and my iMac's specs. I then include the Wine terminal outputs for both the .exe and .msi of NBTExplorer. Thank you for your time.

NBTExplorer 2.8.0: https://github.com/jaquadro/NBTExplorer ... v2.8.0-win

Model Identifier: iMac16,2
Processor Name: Intel Core i5
Processor Speed: 3.1 GHz

Total Number of Cores: 4
L2 Cache (per Core): 256 KB
L3 Cache: 4 MB

While there is a version of NBTExplorer for Macs, it has greatly reduced functionality compared to the Windows version.

Did you run the wine command in the directory where NBTExplorer.exe is?

You need to first install .Net 4.0 using winetricks and then cd into the exe’s directory to get it running.

I am quite sure that I did, but if I didn’t, what would I need to do? Sorry, I am new to Wine. Maybe I missed something.

Thank you! What would I do once I cd into the directory?

So I used Homebrew to install winetricks, but here is my problem when trying to install .Net 4.0:

JFLate2015iMac:~ apple$ winetricks dotnet40
warning: taskset/cpuset not available on your platform!
------------------------------------------------------
wineserver not found!

This means wines bin directory isn’t found in PATH.

The recommend way to install wine is using the brew command provided on the macOS section this will automatically add the installed version of wine into PATH

Thank you very much. I now have Wine Stable and Winetricks installed with Homebrew, and have successfully installed .Net 40 with Winetricks. Here is my current, and hopefully last, problem:

JFLate2015iMac:~ apple$ cd NBTExplorer.exe
-bash: cd: NBTExplorer.exe: No such file or directory

The cd command is used to change directories

When you first open terminal it defaults to ~ aka home.

In my case this would be /Users/gcenx

Now let’s assume I downloaded the zip and extracted it

I’d need to run cd Downloads, now if the exe isn’t within a sub folder I can run

wine NBTExplorer.exe
