Winebottler Free Download For Mac

Keep me going
give me coffee!

With the WineBottler development version 1.7.10 we are addressing an installation issue with Windows based programs that come on CD-ROM or not in a single .msi or .exe file (for example a setup.exe together with some .cab and .ini files). It will be the base for the forthcoming stable 1.6.2 which should be out a few days from now.

I clicked on the supplied Steam install button, and ended up with a new application in my application folder - I called it because I've already got the standard Mac launched fine, did various updates, and eventually gave me what looks like a log-in window without any of the usual text. The WineBottler software is available free of charge to all Mac users. Simply visit the company’s website or another site offering a free download of the software and click on the link to install and run the software free of charge and without limitations. 10 votes, 12 comments. Wondering because I haven’t found a tutorial to download Wine or WineBottler for MacOS Catalina.


Revisiting more old demos 🙂 – Farbrausch r-025 @ 2560 x 1600 running on Wine 1.7.10

Other things that where improved or fixed:

  • Faster start of WineBottler created apps: support for env variables, guessing location and using spotlight only as a last resort.
  • wine menu not found errors: we use a dummy winemenubuilder.exe to avoid errors as suggest by winehq.
  • WineBottler crashes when a bottle is removed: Cases where NSError != 0, but remove succeeded.
  • Codesigning: only try to code sign, if a valid signature is found.

Download WineBottler. Run Windows-based Programs on a Mac. No need to install emulators, virtualizers or boot into other operating systems – WineBottler runs your Windows-based programs directly.

Thank you Marisa and Jim for helping me with these items :).

How to Install S & S Windows Applications on a MAC Computer

WineBottler provides free Windows emulation support to run S & S applications on a MAC.

To get started, download WineBottler. Be sure to download a version that works on your release of Mac OS X. When this article was written, that meant OS X El Capitan and Yosemite users needed to download version 1.8.

Winebottler App

Open the downloaded DMG file. Drag and drop both Wine and WineBottler applications to your Applications folder to install them, just like you would any other Mac application. You can then launch WineBottler from your Applications folder.

WineBottler lists a number of different programs you can easily install. For example, you could install various versions of Internet Explorer if you needed to test websites with them on your Mac. The Windows version of Steam is available, and which could allow you to run some Windows-only games on your Mac. Choose any of these options and WineBottler will automatically download, install, and configure these applications for you.

The installed application will appear under “On My Mac” in the WineBottler window. You can uninstall them from here, if you like. Click an application and it will launch in a window, receiving its own icon on your dock.

Wine And Winebottler

To run another application that doesn’t appear in the WineBottler list, you can simply download it, then right-click or Ctrl-click its .exe file to select Open With > Wine.

WineBottler allows you to quickly execute the .exe directly, if you like. You can also choose to install the application in a Mac .app file created by WineBottler.

If you choose to convert it to an OS X application bundle, you will be taken to the Advanced screen in WineBottler (see below). Provide the .exe file used to install the application and you can install it as an .app using the options here. Depending on the application, you may need various third-party libraries from the Winetricks list, DLL override options, or runtime arguments here to make it work.

However, that often isn’t necessary–just executing .exe files directly with Wine should generally work.
