How can I run TntConnect on my Mac for free via Wineskin?

How can I run TntConnect on my Mac for free via Wineskin?

1)  Download the Wineskin app (download Wineskin).

2)  Download TntConnect 4.0.43 or newer:

3)  In your Downloads folder, double-click on the Wineskin downloaded app to extract it.


4)  Right-click on the "Wineskin Winery" app and click "Open".


5)  Click on the "Open" button.


    Note:  If you see this prompt instead, click Cancel and go back to Step 4 and follow the instructions more closely.


6)  Click the "+" button to install a new Engine.


7)  Choose an engine containing "CX" in the name, preferably version 21.2 or newer.  (It shouldn't matter if you choose a 32-bit or 64-bit engine.)  Then click "Download and Install" and then "OK" to confirm.


8)  Click on the "Update" button to update the Wrapper and then click "OK" to confirm.


9)  Click the "Create New Blank Wrapper" button.  Then name the wrapper "TntConnect" and click "OK".  Note: this process copies alot of files and takes a few minutes.


10) If you're prompted to install Wine Mono, click "Cancel".  (It really doesn't matter if you install it or not.)


11)  When it's done, click the "View wrapper in Finder".


12)  Drag the TntConnect app somewhere else, like your desktop, so it's easy to find later. 


Note:  If you forget to do drag TntConnect onto your desktop, here's how you find it later: In Finder you'd [Go | Home], then go into your personal "Applications" folder and then in the "Wineskin" folder.)

13)  Double-click on your new TntConnect app, and then click "Install Software".


14)  Click on "Choose Setup Executable".


15)  When prompted for a file, in your Downloads folder, choose SetupTntConnect.exe (the one you downloaded in Step 2) and then click "Choose".


16)  Whenever prompted to allow access to a folder by Wineskin or TntConnect, ALWAYS CLICK OK!  :)  If you don't click OK, you'll waste time digging through the settings later so as to grant the application the necessary permissions.


17)  Follow all the prompts to install TntConnect.


18) After TntConnect is installed, you should be prompted to choose the main executable.  Select "C:\ProgramData\__\TntConnect.exe".  If should be selected by default.  Then click "OK".


19)  Finally, click "Quit".


20)  Now you should have in icon on your desktop for the TntConnect app!  Just double-click on it to run it.

THANK YOU!!!  Excited to have this tool accessible on my Macbook again!

So hubby and I are just transitioning to this from Excel - we're so excited! I have a Mac and he has a Windows computer.

Question 1: Can we both use this database with the different OS?

Question 2: Hubby is going to sell his Surface Pro and purchase a Mac when we're in the US next week - will it be easy to import the database from his Windows computer to the new Mac or should he just wait and set it up on the new computer?

When I click the "+" button to install a new Engine, it doesn't show any engine which I can install. What steps can I take to solve this?

Got all the way to "Choose Setup Executable" and I get a message that says "Warning! No new executables found" and can't get any further. Advice?

@Kirstyegreenwell, for Q1:  Yes, you can both use TntConnect, one on Windows, and one on Mac, and you can share your database via Dropbox.  for Q2:  He could start on his Surface Pro, and then later simply move his database file to his Mac, perhaps via Dropbox.

@verkruijssen, I'm not sure.  Maybe it's an internet connection issue.  Maybe click the refresh button to the right of that + button?

@Isaac_Micheals, I'd recommend you delete the app you created and start over.
