GeNIe on Mac

Post by fernando » Tue Mar 03, 2020 7:25 pm

I had some issues trying to run GeNIe on my Mac:

macOS Catalina
Version 10.15.3
iMac Retina 5K, 27-inch 2017

I was trying to install

genie_academic_setup.exe
GeNIe 2.4.4601 Academic Installer (32-bit)
Size: 12.7 MB, released on Oct 1, 2019

Using wine. The result.... It is not possible!!

***SOLUTION***
I used CROSSOVER from CodeWeavers.

GeNIe works beautiful.

I hope this helps
Felix.

Thanks for the info.

The root cause of the problem is macOS 10.15 (Catalina) dropping support for 32-bit applications. GeNIe Academic is currently availablein 32-bit version only, and 64-bit Wine cannot execute 32-bit binaries. Crossover package is based on Wine and is able to run 32-bit Window programs, including GeNIe Academic, on macOS Catalina.

Please note that non-academic GeNIe comes in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, therefor it's still possible to use it on most recent macOS with 64-bit Wine.
