my iPad died. and I have switched to a Mac Air, intel i7 processor, running El Capitan. Will I be able to do everything I used to do on my iPad? I had the iPad version with forms. I downloaded the HanDBase windows 2, but it will not open. It starts to open, but then just closes. I have XQuartz 2.7.7 (xors-server 1.1) open when I try to launch HanDBase.

Hi,

Sorry for the delayed reply. I am working on a new build of the wine package- there is definitely an incompatibility in the current one. I will post an update when I have it loaded up!

To answer your question, it has most of the features that your ipad had, and a bunch that the iPad doesn't have (enhanced CSV import and export, for example). But things like Photos, GPS, etc are not supported directly. If you weren't using those features you shouldn't even notice.

Hi,

A followup to my previous post- I've rebuilt and uploaded the Wine desktop using the latest tools and it seems to be working on El Capitan for me now. Try downloading it again from our site and let me know if you run into any hiccups!
