Remember the days when you couldn't run AutoIT on MAC?

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been covered recently, but thanks to Wine, and some other software which I wont mention without the approval of an admin, AutoIT on a Mac is now a thing. I have years worth of code and dozens of applications I wrote in the past that I had to let go of, and no time to learn new programming languages after I moved to a Mac out of necessity. 

 

I can happily say I'm back.

Wine is great, it emulates most of the WinAPI, a god sent for us Linux Gamers who want to play Windows games :D

@argumentum Don't think it is XQuartz, it is a legit software and it is not related to AutoIt. Perhaps they used a decompiler somewhere? :think:

@Kovacic Can you atleast tell us why this "other software" is required? AutoIt works out of the box in wine for me, no additional software required.

Maybe is unity, go figure. He may have started by playing PC games in a Mac and games goes against forum policy :D
WineBottler maybe ?

I would not say its "required" but it adds a GUI to wine, and gives added benefits. I guess its probably not against the rules. Its called CrossOver. Its a GUI slapped ontop of wine with a few extra features.

@Kovacic Oh, that's interesting... I thought CrossOver was just the commercial version of Wine :). Were you not able to run GUI applications in Wine without CrossOver?

Searching the forum for “cursed fork” (as well as “wicked branch” , “sinister split” and “banned bifurcation”) returns little information.  

Can you provide more detail?  Unless you deem it unwise :)

@JockoDundee In olden times, AutoIt was open-source and inevitably there were some forks, which one of them has gained immense popularity over the years, more info can be found on the Wikipedia page for AutoIt ;)
