WineBottler allows users to bottle Windows applications as Mac apps.

Wine has always been popular among Linux users for running Windows programs, but Wine is available for Mac, too - and now, free utility WineBottler can "bottle" Windows programs into separate application bundles that run as standalone Mac apps.

In other words, WineBottler is a tool similar to codeweavers' Crossover, where separate prefixes are created per app. However, WineBottler 'wraps' or 'bottles' the separate prefixes in an application bundle. WineBottler allows standalone (i.e., not requiring wine to be installed) applications to be more...

Heads up: The download is buried behind 2 pages of spam/ads that encourage you to "Download" a .exe installer (spam/ad)... click the "Skip Ad" button on both pages to get to your actual download.

Very un-Mac-like... ಠ_ಠ

Excellent App! I used it with Wine to get a Music App only available on Windows. It is a great app.

I rated it when I wanted FooBar in my Mac and I love the fact that I got it for my Mac. It is only available on Windows but it is sitting nicely in both of my iMacs the 27" and the 21.5" running SnowLeopard.

I'm fairly experience in using wine as well as Wineskin Winery, so I didn't come to WineBottler as a novice.

However, I was unable to get any programs to work with WineBottler even though they worked perfectly with Wineskin. The fact that they worked so easily with Wineskin tells me that it's not some obscure dependency that wasn't installed.

The author's idea is sound. Perhaps someday when I have lots of spare time to invest I'll get a program working with this. In the meantime I'll continue using what works, and works easily.

I have no problem with winebottler whatsoever but wineskin keeps crashing for me ;)

I love this open source project as it makes me free from Windows
Sometimes you need to get into it to make thinks working but its worth to play!
Once you understand how the bottles work and what your app requires to work you can get even .NET software working (which made me to use virtual Windows before)
If you get into it you may find that you don't need Windows at all (Im not using VMware/VirtualBox/Parallels any more as all I want finally works)

Shame it can't run same app multiple times (as wine does)

The best alternative to WinBottler is the freeware VirtualBox. It's easy to install, to de-install and install/running Win or each other OS in a virtual environment

Howto of WinBottler read this one:

This is a great idea, running Windows applications directly in OSX.

I have one Windows application that I need to run and don't want an entire installation of Windows on my hard drive, nor do I want to pay for it just to run one app.

Unfortunately I couldn't get this to work after playing with various options over the course of several hours. I didn't quite understand all the concepts and there is no help, or "getting started" manual to get me up to speed.

I commend the developer for his efforts though.

This could be very nice app ... But there are obvious problems: I gave it a try and tried to install predefined MS IE6 but install procedure starts nicely downloading IE stuff and continues a while then it just stops and it gives me a log file that is very hard to understand what it says the problem was.
