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?)
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?
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.
