After checking the entire forum and Google with no luck, I am posting this article to request some help.
I have installed the latest version of PlayOnMac, including 3.21 of Wine. After running the MT5 installation software, I get the following pop-up window - see attached file. I cannot get past this window, if I click cancel it ends the installation, if I click OK it does not let me go anywhere.
How do I resolve this issue to get past the Proxy Server window? FYI I have tried the tips on other forum posts that claim to have the same problem with no luck; just in case you point me towards those same forum posts :-/
I am trying to find something related on the forum ... it is the first I found -

New MetaTrader 5 Platform Build 1755

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.

Your wine is still in windows XP mode.
You need to go into settings and set it to windows 7 or higher.
get wine staging

I had the same problem and the solution I found was:
Open System Preferences > Network > Advanced > Proxies >
Enable the first box: Auto Proxy Discovery
Enable the second box: "Automatic Proxy Configuration" and fill the box "Proxy Configuration File" with the URL provided by your internet provider.
Enable the box: "Exclude Simple Hostnames"
Fill the box "Bypass proxy settings for these Hosts and Domains" with as much information about your Trading Broker and Metatrader. Like: *demo.mt5.com , *xpi.com.br, *xpmt5.com, *portal.xpi.com.br, *metatrader5.com,
And also, make sure you are using the last Updated Wine version. It worked for me.
Much appreciate the quick response and references to other articles ... regrettably, none of them work :-((( ... any other ideas?
Is it 32 or 64 bit ?
