With the unofficial Wineskin and a 64bit engine I made an application start (I tried VirtualDub). But trying to access files completely freezes the application. I tried to give the application full access on the hard drive (there are some new privacy things in Catalina), but adding the VirtualDub.app to the system preferences didn't work (I can select it but it will not appear in the list). Adding the ....wine64-preloader worked, but still the application is freezing.

Did anyone already made experiences with Catalina?

I don’t officially support macOS Catalina.

Now that’s I have that outta the way, launch Wineskin.app then try launching using “Test Run” that will launch the wrapper using NSTask and that should allow permissions prompts if required, launching in that manner on Mojave allowed microphone access etc.

But it could be some other reason the app is crashing, for the foreseeable  
future I won’t be upgrading to Catalina, once CrossOver19 is available I’ll be setting up an external install and see what can be done to get Wineskin to function since CrossOver19 will be the only compatible Engine on Catalina for quite sometime.

It seems that it is a problem of VirtualDub. Opening the notepad.exe is absolutely no problem, I can access all files. That's strange.

I hope there will be a solution soon (I needed Catalina for SwiftUI).

Maybe it’s making 32Bit calls even with the 64Bit built as that’s common on Windows.

That’s weird why would you need to upgrade for SwiftUI? Is it like MoltenVK-3.0 branch?

As I’m running XCode11 on Mojave currently, I don’t use Swift anyway but I know your able to install much newer Swift toolchains that can be used within XCode if needed.

I like it... this Windows stuff drives me crazy, really! The step from Apple to 64bit is hard, but who uses 32bit CPU today?

SwiftUI for macOS is only working on Catalina. I'm working on a long term project that will be ready in minimum 2 years, so I can start with SwiftUI ;)

With Wine 4.19 it's working now!

Off topic:
You're using Xcode and no Swift?

That’s good to know, I keep seeing interest in Catalina even on Winehq even just running the portable releases I might make custom wine-devel/staging Portfiles for Catalina.

Now it’s the wait until CrossOver19 source lands.

Off Topic;
Yeah I haven’t used Swift, I might start eventually but for now I haven’t used it for anything.
