I'm also trying to run my first Windows app on a Mac, but can't figure out what I'm doing. I've been googling and trying to figure this stuff out on my own for a little over a week, and I figure its time to just ask for help.
I'm running Mac OS X v10.6.8 and have been following this http://www.davidbaumgold.com/tutorials/wine-mac/ guide so far, but I'm having trouble with Part 4 - Installing Windows Programs Using Wine. I've downloaded Xcode 3.2.6, Macports, configured Macports, installed Wine using Macports (I couldn't find it anywhere on my computer, but the guide I'm following said if my terminal was ready for another command, that it was properly finished) and downloaded the .exe file that I need, but now I'm trying to download Dungeons & Dragons Online and I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.
I've done this in both my Mac's terminal and in Xcode:
Open the terminal, enter $ cd downloads, then $ ls, then $ wine ddostandard.exe, but instead of installing the game, I get this message:
Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong? If it helps, I'd be happy to take screenshots and show you exactly what I have and what folders they're in or whatever else would help, but I just don't think I'm ever going to be able to figure this out on my own.
