MSN for Mac...but I have a problem


#1

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.


#3

oh. Well, it’s that I use a Mac, and then again, MSN just doesn’t work :T


#4

someone said winetricks works but i forgot where that post was


#5

yeah, but idk how to make winetricks work on a Mac :T


#6

dont we all feel that way sometimes?


#7

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”?


#9

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.


#11

It could be because you didn’t installed its components

Make a Windows 7 VM and install WLM or MSN
