Call Win32 executable from Shell on M1

Hi I'm currently evaluating CrossOver.

I have an old Win32 IDE (integrated development environment) that I have been running with CrossOver on my M1. Works fine.

Now I want to build a makefile that calls the assembler and c-compiler that are in the bin directory of that IDE. I want to run that makefile from my VSCode install.

$crossover/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/bin/wine --cx-app $bottle/drive_c/Zilog/drive_c/Zilog/ZDSII_eZ80Acclaim!_5.3.5/bin/ez80cc.exe

I know I can open a Shell from within CrossOver. Apart from sending arguments to executables that works. But I want to start the .exe from outside of CrossOver. How does that work?

I've read an old post with a shell script but that doesn't work anymore.

Let me know.

Best regards, Mario

Try it like this:

DYLD_FALLBACK_LIBRARY_PATH=/Applications/CrossOver.app/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/lib64 WINARCH=win64 WINEPREFIX=/Users/amani/Library/Application\ Support/CrossOver/Bottles/Steam PATH=$PATH:/Applications/CrossOver.app/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/CrossOver-Hosted\ Application /Applications/CrossOver.app/Contents/SharedSupport/CrossOver/CrossOver-Hosted\ Application/wine32on64 pathtoyourwantedexe.exe

Replace "amani" with your user account, "wine32on64" with "wine" for a 32-bit binary and "pathtoyourwantedexe.exe" with the full path to the exe you want to run.
