Hi everyone,

I discovered wineskin yesterday, I've been using Wine for a while to open Windows games / app.
I tried to make wineskin work on my mac but when i put the app in the wrapper and try to launch it, nothing happens.

I have the icon with the wrapper open on my dock but nothing is showing at all.
If I run a test run, nothing will happen and it'll ask me if I want to look at the log but even then, the log won't show, TextEdit will stay on the dock trying to start but nothing will happen.

I don't know what I need to do to make something work.

I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.5 and my GPU is Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB.

Thanks in advance.

How exactly did you 'put the app in the wrapper'? You need to be a lot more specific.

I create a "new blank wrapper", then I open it. I then have 3 options, right?
1. Install Software
2. Set Screen options
3. Advanced

So after "installing" the software, in my case, it's copying a folder, I just need to run the wrapper to start the app or not?
If so, it doesn't start (it works using Wine alone though) otherwise what did I do wrong?

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Did you select the right Windows EXEcutable in the wrapper (under 'advanced'), so that it knows what to run?

Which version of Wineskin wrapper and engine are you using? What app are you trying to install?

My wrapper version is 2.9.0.2 and the engine I'm using is WS9Wine64Bit4.12.1. As for apps, no apps work at all, no matter the app.

Did you try grabbing one of Gcenx' WS10Wine engines? I have been using those without issue, though your issue may be unrelated.

After deleting everything, downloaded everything again, rebooting my pc, it somehow works now. I am very sorry for the "stupid" post.
I don't know why and how it works now because I didn't do anything special since that was what was I was doing all the time to try to make it work but it didn't before.

Thanks for the help and sorry for the inconvenience.

It happens. We've all had phantom bugs.
