[edit] List Of Programs Running In Darwine

Here, you may list programs that run in Darwine. Please leave in details reguarding your method of installation. Some procedures thus far have been installing in Windows and pointing Darwine to the .exe on the Windows installation, or installing directly through Darwine.

[edit] Don't Forget the OFFICIAL Wine Application Database

Please go to the official Wine Application Database.

[edit] Working Applications in Darwine

Make sure to add your OS version, Darwine version, and any specific patches you may have applied. Please add a user comment box with the <pre> tags when giving feedback on working applications.

  • "Copy Files" = Program's installer fails, but if you can aquire the program's main .exe and other files (copy it over from Windows), it will run.
  • "Stand-alone" = Program is an extremely simple .exe file and requires no installer or additional files to run.
  • "Installer" = Program uses an installer, and will install successfully for some.
  • "User Comments" = Feedback from users; may show useful tidbits for installing.

  • 7-Zip
  • ACDSee32 2.21 - User Comments:
Works well. Program was installed on the windows hard drive in XP.
Accessed the executable in the ACDsee folder in the Program Files directory.
Ran it in OSx86 with Darwine. No problems.
  • Adaware 1.06 SE (Installer)
(Updates must be done manually)
  • Adaware SE (Installer)
  • Adobe Photoshop 6
Installer runs as normal, as does application.
  • Agent News Reader 3.0
  • Any Image Converter (Copy Files)

No connection to internet
  • Babya Logic (Installer)
Babya Logic works fine  in 10.4.7

Seems to work fine, must be copied to your drive_c directory. Need to use a different font than the default. 
Haven't tried exporting to a controller.
  • Emule (Copy Files) - User Comments:
Everything works. Kad works, searching works, downloading works, etc.
I was rather surprised on how well everything worked.

    Does not detect drive
  • IrfanView (Stand-alone)
  • Isilo 4.31 (Stand-alone)
 Works almost 100%. OSX 10.4.5 (Installed in windows XP pro x64). Clue: I thought it would be better to install the program in compatibility mode in XP, as win98 I believe, probably makes things a little easier for Darwine.
  • Isobuster (with Installation)
Works pretty good
  • mIRC (Until you connect to a network) : New !! Workaround : disable autoconnect, close the window and manually click on the thunder icon (tested and works with mirc 6.0). Works fine with Wine 0.9.15 with autoconnect.

  • Ultimate Paint 1.91f (Installer)
Freeware from http://www.woundedmoon.org/win32/ultimatepaint191f.html, click on the installer, and it is 
installed without incident.  One issue I noticed is that when you click on the file menu, an error message pops up.

[edit] Darwine Problems

  • Cannot edit the config file ./winecfg runs but doesnt output to the config file (which we are still unable to locate)
    • Solution: Just edit user.reg, then add [Software\\Wine] and save the file! Then HKEY_CURRENT_USER will bi writable by wine and by winecfg!
  • It will fail on any application that checks the windows version
    • Using WineCfg to set the version for a given executable usually fixes this problem.
  • It cannot load .DLL files Sometimes, wine can't find the DLLs. Loading is not a problem.
    • Copying the right .dlls from the windows directory to the application's directory makes some apps work!
    • However, a much more elegant solution is to actually tell WINE where to look for DLLs by setting the DYLD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable.
  • It won't work with applications that use OpenGL

[edit] Commentary

Some speculate that Darwine will rapidly improve over the next few months. Since Apple OS X86 and Windows XP run on very similiar hardware, expect many cross-overs. Darwine may soon be able to run XP applications seamlessly in Aqua, such that it is comparable to Rosetta's ability to run PowerPC applications.
