    Hello,

    this is my first post here so please be gentle if I wrongly placed this question.
    As I am a brand new Mac user (unpacked my MacBook just a few hours ago) I may post silly questions.

    So - as I would like to use the Notepad++ on my new Mac, I found out (after a lot og Googling) that I need and Mac version of the Wine - the Darwine to be able to run it. So I got the 1.1.7 version of the Darwin form HERE After the installation I have the Darwine folder inside the Applications and it contains:
    - Sample WineLib Applications
    - Wine.Bundle
    - WineHelper

    Afterwards I got the Notepad++ from HERE. I downloaded the executable file (npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe)

    Now - my understand it about how to run the Notepad++ correctly is following:
    1) Run the Wine.Bundle
    2) Click "Choose the application"
    3) Do so

    - But just I can not choose the "npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe".

    - If I just run the npp.5.1.3.Installer.exe direcly via clickung on it - it crashes

    - If I try to run the WineHelper - it also crashes ....

    What did I di wrong? Any help will be strongly appreciated.

    thanks

    Just curious, why the need to run Notepad ++ on your Mac? There are plenty comparable text editors out there.

    I also wanted to run Notepad++ on my Mac as it's probably the best HTML PHP Java Javascript Pascal etc code editor ever but as i don't have intel based mac i guess i can't even run Darwine (can i?).

    And so i used Coda (It's almost as good and it's native OS X app). So I would suggest you use Coda. It's really really good!

    I am also looking for a good editor with Syntax highlighting for perl/php/c/xcode. Do you know if coda does this? Also how about BBEdit?

    That's exactly why I want to get it running. But I am just not sure whether I am doing it properly.

    I will have a look at the coda.

    Yes pyrodex Coda can do all that. and i truly recommend it. It's really like a Notepad++ alternative on Mac :) Enjoy!
