“Wine” on MAC OS

MetaQuotes, the developer of MT5 trading platform, recommends traders to use “Wine”.

Wine is a free and open source software application that aims to allow applications designed for Microsoft Windows to run on Unix-like operating systems. One of the Wine versions is designed for Mac OS.

To install the platform on Mac OS, we recommend that you use the open source software PlayOnMac. PlayOnMac is a Wine-based free software providing easy installation and use of Windows applications on Mac OS.

To install PlayOnMac, go to its official website, open the Downloads section and click the link to download the latest version.

Wine v. 1.4 is installed together with PlayOnMac. The latest stable version is Wine 1.4.1. Wine 1.5.21 beta release containing many improvements is also available for download. However, it may be less stable. It is recommended to install the latest version of Wine.

*Note that Wine is not a fully stable application. This means that some functions in the applications you start under it may work improperly or not work at all.
