Interesting. It seems to have different goals than WineBottler in that it really makes a self-contained app with its own version of Wine and X11 built in. Sounds great for a one-off, but less so if you have a few programs that could share some of those resources.

FWIW doh123 is an MR member.

So I have a question. I used Wineskin to create a wrapper for my Shimeji, and they show up on my desktop, but there's a black background behind them. The images themselves do not have backgrounds and are transparent. Is there any way to fix the background issue? The wrapper has Java installed in it, so I don't know what the other problem(s) could be...

Thanks so much in advance.
