Wine 2.0 with 64 bit support for macOS

Post by Max » Fri Jan 27, 2017 12:43 pm

Recently wine version 2.0 was released. Interesting news is the 64 bit support on Mac OS X.

It worked quite well for my needs on a 2012 MacBook pro running macOS Sierra 10.12.3:

Tiny HOWTO:

Download and install the wine 2.0 pgk-file from https://dl.winehq.org/wine-builds/macosx/download.html
While installation check the box for experimental 64 bit support. Start the wine app. To activate the 64 support, type in the opened terminal

WINEARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=~/.wine winecfg

and follow the configuration process. For testing, download and extract Stockfish for Windows. Move to the stockfish directory and type in the terminal "wine stockfish_8_x64.exe bench"

You can add the wine path for convenience to your .profile. In my case (installed wine just for me and renamed the app to Wine_Devel.app) "export PATH=/Users/max/Applications/Wine_Devel.app/Contents/Resources/wine/bin:$PATH"

Unfortunately the issue that originally stopped them from supporting OSX with wine64 hasn't actually been worked around. They just decided that maybe it won't affect all applications, and to go ahead with it anyway. In my experience there are a few 64bit chess engines that won't run. Fire for instance.
