Run 64-bit Wine in Catalina

Post by starparrot » Thu Nov 07, 2019 5:54 pm

I'm trying to run 64-bit Wine and a 64-bit Windows app on macOS 10.15.1 Catalina. I have installed Wine Development 4.19 from .pkg including the optional 64-bit support, however the app won't launch from the Applications folder. About This Mac -> System Report shows that Wine Devel is a 32-bit app. How can I launch the 64-bit version of Wine considering that I also installed the optional 64-bit support?

I tried the solution given in this post but it didn't work for me (probably partly due to the reason mentioned above).

Thanks

The app bundles launcher is 32Bit.

You would be better using the a portable version.

You require libfreetype and libpng15 to run wine/wine64

Download a portable release, unpack somewhere within “~/“ add the /wine_unpackaged_name/bin (this folder contains wine, wine64 etc) to PATH

Then you can launch wine64 from a terminal session.
