Just a quick question. I no longer have a BootCamp partition on my Mac and am wondering if Muvizu will work with WINE?

I'm not sure if anyone's tested this before - so please, if you do try it, tell us the result.

Two bottles of Rioja last night and despite the odd hiccough I still managed to do a spot of animation! Buddies

I was very confused for a second there, and then I understood the pun.
Thumbs Up

Well the short answer is "No"

The longer answer would be that WINE looks to www.freetype.org for fonts and cannot (perhaps it's my security settings) find what it's looking for and that's where it falls flat on its face. WINE doesn't go any farther than that so I don't know if there would be any other hiccoughs if it did manage to progress. In WINE TRICKS I remembered to enable the Direct X 11 emulator and the Visual C++ 2010 emulator thingumajigs. No joy.


Downloaded the 14 day trial of Parallels Desktop Home edition and installed windows 10 before installing Muvizu. Parallels runs Muvizu but jumpily.


Am not wanting to create another BootCamp partition so am going to be unable to use Muvizu in the near future.

Thank you both for your response and @Dylly, you made me smile.
