This might not be the best place to go for help, but here goes. I Just got a mac last week. I have been debating running windows on a duel boot, but right now I really just need one program. I grabbed the winebottler to help me install it. It runs the installation great, the window pops up and says that the installation is complete, but then a an error "runtime error cwindows]system32\msiexec.exe R6016 - not enough space for thread data

I'm not sure how to go about debugging it so that it will work. I'm comfortable with a computer but i'm not a great programmer. I don't really want to have a duel boot for just one program (which I would prefer to run side by side with my other programs). I don't want to buy parallels or anything like that, I guess that kind of defeats the purpose of switching, if it's going to cost me a lot to run what I need. Any help would be appreciated

that is windows stuff which is not gong to work on a Mac - ever - unless you dual boot with a Windows OS. What were you trying to do. There is probably an equivalent Mac App to what you were wanting to install.

The program is Polymath, it's an ODE solver for chemical engineers that I use for homework

Wine can't run anything fancy, just the basics (Notepad, Minesweeper, Clock, etc.).

I dunno I run my work applications using wine. I just finished compiling a new wine to work with it. I run Eralink reynolds and reynolds application for automotive business. I've been reading and wine should be able to run alot more then these 'basic' programs you've mentioned.

Now i'm downloading this 15day trial version for it. i can try to install it on my wine and tell you how it goes. its only 15mb?

Edit: I got the same error you did i'm going to look into it. We're probably missing a dependency.
