So since my Dell laptoppy broke down, I want to use MSN on a mac. I tried using it with Wine, but it didn’t work since I tried typing my name in, it doesn’t do any jack sh!t. Does anyone else have a working version of MSN for mac? Cuz I would REALLY like to use MSN right now
Nathan, did you actually search first instead of posting?
No?, also wrong catagory, this belongs in #software, not Meta.
oh. Well, it’s that I use a Mac, and then again, MSN just doesn’t work :T
someone said winetricks works but i forgot where that post was
yeah, but idk how to make winetricks work on a Mac :T
dont we all feel that way sometimes?
Use WineBottler to make a bundle for it (advanced tab) and check these boxes in the Winetricks section:
corefonts flash gecko msls31 msxml3 riched20 riched30 tahoma
Then the textboxes should work.

should I check “copy file to the app bundle” or “copy file and all files in the folder to the app bundle”?
Use "Execute file (installer)."
When setup completes, it’ll launch MSN, force-quit it then it’ll finish creating the app bundle.
I am doing the same things this guy is doing, but I get the same result of no username or password. I am currently using a Mac Mini Late-2014, and I’m wondering if it’s got something to do with my Mac or it’s because something isn’t installed, I’m not sure.
It could be because you didn’t installed its components
Make a Windows 7 VM and install WLM or MSN
