I have been trying for a few days to install the Sims 4 onto my laptop and could really use some help! I am running the 1.8.6 configuration of Wine and successfully installed the same game without the new patch a few months ago. Originally I installed it by right clicking on my .exe file and pressing "open with" wine and it installed it for me. Now when I do that it makes a prefix and brings me to a wine doc that looks like a word document? So I tried to go to the pull down on the wine app and click "Control Panel" and "Install" and opened my .exe file but I get a message that says "The program TS4.exe has encountered a serious problem..etc". Really not sure what to do if someone could please help me. Honestly considering just buying a dang PC :cry:

First, update your wine - 1.8.x is years out of date. Then try to run it from the terminal and see what happens.

Do you mean the development 2.0 version? Because the 1.8.6 is the most up to date stable version on the webiste. Both the 1.8.6 and the 2.0 are just creating prefixes when I try to install with winebottler and with wine it says "command not found" or "no such file or directory" or "The Program TS4.exe has encountered a serious problem and needs to close".

Winebottler is not supported here; this forum is for plain Wine only. The current stable release of Wine is 4.0 and the current development and staging releases are 4.3. Use the WineHQ packges. http://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html

First remove Winebottler and Wine as those are both nothing todo with Winehq releases and could cause issues for you later. (That’s where a lot of confusion comes in as Winebottler bundles it’s own custom “Wine.app”)

Use this link and make sure you install XQuartz 2.7.11, then install a wine package.
http://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html

For more information on getting wine to run from a normal terminal window and other settings check the wiki section https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS_FAQ

Ignore the Compression messages that’s a false positive.

Your trying to run “wine TS4.exe” from your home folder, you can cheat here just type wine into terminal then drop TS4.exe onto the terminal windows then press enter.

You're missing a dll, did you install that program properly?

Okay, I got it to run, do you know how to create a shortcut so I don't have to open the terminal every time? I don't have enough room on my laptop for everything so I want to create a shortcut in my external hard drive. I have looked at the instructions on the FAQ and they just don't make any sense to me.

You can create a simple .desktop file, see for example https://www.maketecheasier.com/create-d ... ile-linux/. Is that what you mean?

That’s very Linux specific the macOS section includes how to make an AppleScript launcher and .command launcher.

I slightly updated them both a while back
