WineBottler for Mac4.0.1.1

23 September 2019

Bottle Windows apps as Mac application bundles.

What is WineBottler for Mac

WineBottler allows users to bottle Windows applications as Mac apps.

WineBottler allows users to bottle Windows applications as Mac apps. This gives you the ability to run Windows-based programs on your Mac which helps bridge the gap if you’re missing out on a Windows app. It allows you to run things such as browsers, media players, games, and business applications.

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 created as well, by including the wine bundle inside the standalone application bundle.

Note: While the software is classified as free, it is actually donationware. Please consider making a donation to help support development.

What's new in WineBottler

Version 4.0.1.1:
Ntlm_auth and gnuTLS:
  • The size of the Wine.app is growing rapidly. Because of that I'm not to happy about adding new libs. But with the very justified enforcement of encrypted connection on all channels I've added sambas ntlm_auth and gnuTLS to support more cryptographic functions. This way browsers and Game Clients can connect properly. And (once again) you shouldn't see the dreaded:
  • Err:winediag:SECUR32_initNTLMSP ntlm_auth was not found or is outdated. Make sure that ntlm_auth >= 3.0.25 is in your path. Usually, you can find it in the winbind package of your distribution
Gatekeeper:
  • As noticed by several people, my Apple Developer ID Certificates did expired lately, so that Gatekeeper made you do the Unidentified-Developer-Dance and open WineBottler via maxOSs Security & Privacy settings. WineBottler 4.0.1.1 is now properly signed with my new certificates, but the dancing will continue with the older downloads until they are re-signed. New fun looms with Apples Notarization requirements
Other Changes:

At the moment, our main focus is to improve the overall stability of the package. This is why this build of Wine.app is still based on Wine 4.0.1. There might be some more 4.0.1 iterations before we move on to more current builds of WineHQ

  • Made included libs and binaries fully relocatable
  • Support for 64 bit prefixes in Wine.app
  • Support Darkmode on macOS Mojave in WineBottler and Wine.app
  • Fix search for existing WineBottler apps and Wine prefixes
  • Removed obsolete code and env variables for X11
