I have already had wine on my mac, now I would like to know whether it's possible to automatically running wine when I double-click an .exe file (on Finder), because I believe wine doesn't go to my Application folder when I installed it...

If possible, how exactly?

Added info: it's not as easy as "Get Info" --> "Open With" --> "Other" --> find wine (my case, in /opt/local/bin/wine) and select it, since it wasn't allowed (I believed because it wasn't recognized as an application)

PS: I don't know if this is needed, I use MacOSX Lion.

Give wine bottler a try. Sounds like it does what you want. Unfortunately couldn't try it myself.

This is good since it has on it... wine bottler is not needed since it will change my .exe file to .app file – zfm Dec 1 '11 at 9:40

Check out WinOnX as another potential wine wrapper. It leaves your .exe files intact and lets you run them by double clicking.

this might be better, but it's not free :D – zfm Dec 2 '11 at 7:05
