Anyone ever have success getting Bloom to run on a Mac via CrossOver or W.I.N.E.? I have attempted to install Bloom on a MacBook Air M1 with CrossOver in a “bottle” with .NET 4.7.1 installed, but I get an error that I can’t figure out how to solve:
Please re-run this installer as a normal user instead of “Run as
The Bloom installer is designed to install without administrator privileges. Since you seem to have those privileges by default, you could try running the installer from a command line with the argument “–allUsers”.
(I don’t know for sure that this will help, or that Bloom will work in this environment even if it installs, but it should get you past that particular problem.)
@john_thomson Thank you for the idea. Using the “–allUsers” tag made it install. Unfortunately, it launches briefly, then disappears. I have .NET 4.8 installed. Not sure what else would be needed to make it work in the WINE environment. Would be nice to figure it out somehow.
