Oh yes, I was indeed trying to launch him from the launcher on the cdrom [Rolling Eyes]

So it's possible !  :) 

The install directory on my computer is located there : /Users/guillaume/Wine\ Files/drive_c/Program\ Files/EA\ GAMES/Battlefield\ 1942 

I have made the cd command, but the "wine 1942.exe" command isn't recognized by the terminal !...
I also try to double click on the exe file, X11 wakes up but nothing more ...

I think that it may be because I didn't install Wine completely using this method : http://davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/ but that I only downloaded this package  http://winebottler.kronenberg.org/ including wine bottler (that I don't use) and a wine application already compiled (but in beta version)...

Should I try to install Wine with the most complicate method ?? http://davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/
Do you think I would have more chance to get it working ?

Thanks a lot for your answers !
