    Hi everyone,

    Last week I made the transition to Mac after a lifetime of using Windows. Everything is going great, except there is one crucial Windows program I use every day that I would like to get working on my Mac, and I can't figure out how to.

    The program, called "Chinese Word Extractor", is located here: (scroll to the bottom - it's the last program on the page)

    You can paste a Chinese text into the program, and it will split the characters into words, and give definitions for each word. I study Chinese, and I can't live without this program.

    I downloaded WineBottler, but I can't seem to get it to work with this program. Anyone have any suggestions? Maybe I'm using WineBottler wrong, and some of you can figure out how to use it with this program?

    Thank you so much

    You could run Windows as Virtual Machine via VMWare Fusion, Parallels Desktop or Sun VirtualBox (free) and run that application inside Windows again.

    I don't know much about WineBottler, but maybe you ask on the WineBottler support forum for help and describe to them what you did, if you don't want to go the Windows route.
