HB for Win Wine on Mac

Postby glenwf » Sat Dec 15, 2018 5:21 pm

I want to use my Wine installation on my Mac desktop, but when I do it can only see my previous installation of iPodTouch 5 files. I try to see the iPhone5 files to edit, but it only sees the old installation of the touch. It is "unable to launch the iPhone Sync & user settings. Perhaps HanDBase for iPhone is not installed."

What do I do for the Wine version to see the files on my iPhone5 - the files in
/Users/glenforister/Documents/HanDBase ??

The Wine version looks in the Windows location for the user documents and so it doesn't see the ones you have on your Mac version of the desktop. However, you can use the custom user feature in the desktop to point to the folder of your iPhone user on the Mac side. Here's how:

Open HanDBase Desktop for Windows and under Devices, select Configure and then ‘Other/Custom Users’.

From this dialog you can create a named user that points to a folder on your desktop.

Select Create New User.

Enter a name for this user- for example, “Shared Databases”

Select the Browse button and point to the folder you have within the Mac version for your user.

Choose Desktop Only for the User Type.

Now Press OK, and when you go to open a database using the File|Open command, you can select this custom user from the drop down list. NOTE: You’ll have to restart the HanDBase Desktop for this change to take effect.
