Running LC 9.0.0 dp-11 Windows on Mac OS Lion

Post by richmond62 » Thu Dec 28, 2017 4:49 pm

As LiveCode 9.0.0 dp-11 will not run on ancient versions of Mac OS X such as 10.7.5
which I run on my 10 year old iMac I thought I'd have a bash at installing the Windows
version instead:

1. I downloaded and installed Winebottler (the stable version):

http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/

2. This allowed me to install LC 9.0.0 dp-11 under WINE.

2.1 "You Only" throws an error.

2.2. "Custom" & then "you only" works.

3. I was able to run LC via WINE:

As I run several machines with either Xubuntu or MX Linux that can run LC 9.0.0 dp-11
I did this just as a bit of fun. Although, it might be useful both for testing how stacks
look under Windows and how Windows standalones turn out.

Making a self-contained app with wine bottler has NO advantages:
