Hello, 

I have just recently bought a MacBook Pro, and I was going over the installation process for the metatrader terminal, but when I run the setup.exe this error message appears:

Has anyone had this problem before? How did you solve it?

Thank you!

I already have the most updated wine package but it does not work. Have you managed to do it?

Do you have service pack 1 for windows 7 in your wine ?

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1755

MetaQuotes Software Corp., 2018.01.18 11:08

We recommend anyone who has long been using 32-bit Wine for MetaTrader 5 due to the past incompatibility with the 64-bit terminal to upgrade Wine to the latest 64-bit version and re-install MetaTrader 5 in 64 bits.

Besides, make sure to set the Wine compatibility mode to at least Windows 7 instead of the default Windows XP. No more updates for Windows XP/2003/Vista will be released.

We are also halting the development of the 32-bit versions of the MetaTrader 5 terminals. The updates for 32-bit MetaTrader 5 are to be completely stopped soon.

Your wine is still in windows XP mode.

You need to go into settings and set it to windows 7 or higher.

You are trying to run a 64 bit program on a 32 bit environment.

Of course that won't work.

Make a 64-bits virtual drive and install it on that one.
