I successfully installed Wine and Winebottler on my iMac (Yosemite) and was able to install Notepad just fine but not irfanview.  


Has anyone had any experience installing irfanview on a Mac with Winebottler?


Thank you,

I thought Irfanview was only for Windows use. From the website:



What is IrfanView?

IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x, ME, NT, 2000, XP, 2003 , 2008, Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8. 
(click here for IrfanView EULA)

I've learned blood is not thicker than money.

Wine and Winebottler are well known and stable programs allowing windows programs to be run on macs.


Irfanview, the Windows version, should run under wine and winebottler.  As I said, I easily installed the windows Notepad and also Windows Media Player on my iMac from wine and winebottler, but irfanview would not install and gave copious error messages.


I just thought someone might have had some experience installing irfanview using winebottler on a mac.
