Wherigo builder on Mac OSX


Recommended Posts

Tnx for your response.


I am an avid FreeBSD and OpenBSD user, as well as Linux.

I am well aware of Wherigo\\kit and Earwigo. I am testing with the latter but seem to run into some issues defining zones on a map, with shapes other than octagonal (circle).

And I'd like to use an app local to my laptop, which would make offline usage a lot easier.

I got the native WherigoBuilder running on Pop!_OS 22.04. Here's how I did it:

  1. Update the default wine in the ubuntu packages to version 8.0 using this guide
  2. Update winetricks:
    sudo winetricks --self-update
  3. Create a new Wine environment using winetricks, using 32 bit architecture (or with the following command)
    WINEPREFIX="~/.local/share/wineprefixes/Wherigo-builder" WINEARCH="win32" winecfg
  4. Download the WherigoBuilder
  5. Install .NET 4.8 using winetricks (GUI or the following command)
    WINEPREFIX="~/.local/share/wineprefixes/Wherigo-builder" winetricks dotnet48
  6. Finally, install the Wherigo Builder itself:
    WINEPREFIX="~/.local/share/wineprefixes/Wherigo-builder" wine msiexec /i ./BuilderInstall.msi

So far it works well but was quite a hassle to get it to work.
