hi there guys first of all i know this is possibly nothing you guys may be able to help me with, but if you don't ask you dont get as my mother used to say lol, right then i am trying to install a win 23 app using wine i have managed to install xcode and macports and installed wine fantastic this is what i have done so far..

configuered mac ports

echo export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:\$PATH$'\n'export MANPATH=/opt/local/man:\$MANPATH | sudo tee -a /etc/profile

export PATH=/opt/local/bin:/opt/local/sbin:$PATH

export MANPATH=/opt/local/man:$MANPATH

checked 64 bit

if [ `sysctl -n hw.cpu64bit_capable` -eq 1 ] ; then echo "+universal" | sudo tee -a /opt/local/etc/macports/variants.conf; else echo "not 64bit capable"; fi


then ran this to install wine

sudo port install wine

once i had completed that i decided to create a folder on my desktop and named it CISCO, then copied the 32 bit .exe in to the folder once that was done, through terminal i went to the folder

cd Desktop/cisco

and i can see my file PacketTracer533_setup_no_tutorials.exe

so from there i ran the follwing command to install the application

wine PacketTracer533_setup_no_tutorials.exe

this took a few moments and the wine window started and the installer launched and i saved it to c:/Program Program Files/Cisco (default location)

when i came to run this application i ran this

cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/

an then tried to run it with

wine Cisco Packet Tracer 5.3.3

then i was confronted with this error

Dynamic session lookup supported but failed: launchd did not provide a socket path, verify that org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist is loaded!
wine: cannot find L"C:\\windows\\system32\\Cisco.exe"

i did look on thier site on the dbus error and when i ran this

launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchAgents/org.freedesktop.dbus-session.plist

i was returned with "Nothing Found"

if anybody can help with with this i would appriciate it as i have treid to reinstall this a few times now can can not :-( worst still i can not remove the said application now


cheers for any advice :unsure:
