Wine is not an emulator. its an "application compatibility layer" designed to run your Windows programs via the APIs of the Mac OSX operating system. Its a really great open source, community run project.

WINE actually stands for Wine Is Not an Emulator.

this makes no impact towards your troubleshooting in anyway, I just wanted to say, because you asked "What is WINE?"

Have you ever installed a game ported through something called "Cider"?
