WineBottler | 1.7.10

Keep me going
give me coffee! Smoke 1 Smoke 2 Smoke 3

WineBottlerWith the WineBottler development version 1.7.10 we are addressing an installation issue with Windows based programs that come on CD-ROM or not in a single .msi or .exe file (for example a setup.exe together with some .cab and .ini files). It will be the base for the forthcoming stable 1.6.2 which should be out a few days from now.

Farbrausch r-025Revisiting more old demos 🙂 – Farbrausch r-025 @ 2560 x 1600 running on Wine 1.7.10

Other things that where improved or fixed:

  • Faster start of WineBottler created apps: support for env variables, guessing location and using spotlight only as a last resort.
  • wine menu not found errors: we use a dummy winemenubuilder.exe to avoid errors as suggest by winehq.
  • WineBottler crashes when a bottle is removed: Cases where NSError != 0, but remove succeeded.
  • Codesigning: only try to code sign, if a valid signature is found.

Thank you Marisa and Jim for helping me with these items :).
