I use Mac and every time I try and download simsig onto it using WineBottler, as usual I put the .exe file into the installer, then while downloading it always fails, can anyone help?

I don't know what it should be downloading given you already have the .exe file, could you post a screenshot?

The errors are visible for a short time at 21 seconds in your video. It's not a downloading error. Could you copy/paste the bottom (from ###BOTTLING### on) so it is easier for us to read?

I see 'Bad CPU type in executable'. This suggests an issue running 32-bit software, although it appears to apply to Wine's own regedit executable rather than SimSigInstaller.exe. Which Mac OS version are you using?

Thanks. It appears your Mac OS version is too new and doesn't run 32-bit software nicely.

In macOS 10.15 Catalina, support for 32-bit applications was removed. Wine is working to provide their own 32-bit compatibility layer but that takes time. The paid Crossover version can already run 32-bit applications on new macOS versions although I haven't checked whether it supports Big Sur.

SimSig is not available in a 64-bit version. Perhaps it could be compiled as such by the developers but so far macOS >=10.15 is the only platform on which it is required, so I don't think it is a priority, especially given Wine is working on 32-bit support for macOS.

It appears PlayOnMac does run 32-bit applications and supports SimSig, could you try whether it runs there?

Looks like the SimSig script is outdated and needs to be edited to include MSXML.

is there a way you could explain how it needs to be done or if I just have to wait for the developers to do it?

Please open the configuration window, click SimSig, go to the Miscellaneous tab and click "Open a Shell". In this terminal, please run:

POL_Call POL_Install_msxml6

I think you should ask this question in the PlayOnMac community - they should be able to fix their script.

From your videos it is clear that PlayOnMac is able to run 32-bit software but the SimSig script is somehow outdated. That is a much easier thing to fix than 32-bit support for Winebottler on Big Sur, which is in progress but without a clear ETA at the moment.
