Nobody is going to direct/private/instant message you, nor should they  Wine is a community-supported effort.  Sending private help to users who either choose not to or cannot answer questions about what they've tried, where they're failing, etc., benefits exactly no one.  Asking for private help on a public forum/mailing list is a faux pas.  We're trying to help you here, and in doing so, help other folks who may have the same problem you're encountering - whatever it may be.  Please read and understand the documentation the community provides:


And describe what you've tried.  "Everything" is not an acceptable answer.  As mentioned previously you should be able to install Wine using a scripted method, like MacPorts.  This is not technically supported by the folks on the forums/mailing lists hosted at winehq.org, but you may have luck following step-by-step guides like this (for MacPorts):


If you have issues with MacPorts, you'll need to discuss with them.  Using a binary distribution, like Mike Kronenberg's WineBottler will probably get you up and running quickly too, but again, support issues for distributions such as this will need to be taken up with the package maintainer:
