So I decided to install Wine and run the PC version of e-Sword on my Mac running OSX 10.12.6 Sierra instead of the eSword X version (more accessible layout, less clicking around, more modules available, etc...just personal preference)

Successfully installed Wine, the Stable 4.0 version

Successfully went to the e-Sword website, dowloaded the e-Sword PC version 11.22

Successfully (I thought), ran the "setup1122.exe" file through Wine.  It went very smoothly, ran the Install Wizard, finished installing. Great!  (for those of you wondering, apparently this is the latest/only version available for download from the e-Sword website?)

 

then.... I could not for the life of me figure out how to actually run e-Sword from there!  Two files were installed on my desktop but neither of them will execute:

 

e-Sword.desktop     (appears to be a terminal file?)

e-Sword.Ink

 

Things I've already tried:

  1)  neither file will open when I click on them. Error message says "no application set up to run this file"

  2) running a command line from Wine  in Terminal:   wine e-sword.exe   (doesn't work, says it can't find the path)

  3) searching for where the program files were installed (can't find any. A Spotlight search for .exe  doesn't bring up any e-sword files)

  4) tried dragging and dropping the files onto the Wine program, but it wouldn't accept them

 

 

So where the heck is this thing?  And how do I run it?  It "pretended" to install the setup1122.exe file and the wizard ran just fine.....Suggestions?   where do I go from here?

 

Note:

e-Sword X v6.2 is already installed prior to this and I didn't uninstall it because it's a paid-for program through the AppStore.  But not trying to run it through WINE anyways.

 

Thanks in advance

 

The exe file for e-Sword should be at:

 

/home/thomas/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/e-Sword

 

Replace thomas with your user name. I'm sick and I don't remember what I did from here to get an icon to click on the desktop. It will run from here by just double clicking the file. I'm sorry that I wasn't more help. I feel awful. Maybe the system will add an icon to click - I just can't remember.


Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV)
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. 7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

yes! that worked!   Thank you Thomas. Your memory was better than you thought :)

 

I had to turn on  hidden files, then my path was just a bit different, but I found it as you said.  Double-clicking on the exe file worked.     I made an alias and put it on my desktop, for convenience, and double clicking on the alias also works.

 

Thank you so much     I pray you feel better soon

You're most welcome - I'm glad it's working for you. Thank you for the prayers.

Did you change the default fonts already installed in e-Sword? If not, I don't have a clue what could be wrong. Rebooting sometimes fixes all kinds of problems, so try that.
