Can PlayOnMac and WINE coexist on the same Mac?

Hi, There,

I've been exploring WINE, CrossOver and (now) PlayOnMac on my MacBook Pro.

I am currently downloading PlayOnMac but already have WINE for Mac installed on my laptop. Can I test PlayOnMac while WINE is still installed on my Mac? Will one interfere with the other?

Thank you!

No. They will not interfere with eachother. They work out of separate folders. :)

ps: although, you can run "system wine" through PoL, which is your other version. Other than that, they wont interfere. lol

Thanks a lot for the speedy reply!

By the way, from what I can see on the web site, PoM/PoL keeps its version of WINE more up to date than does the Port version, true?

Yep, that's pretty true. PlayOnMac can install several versions of wine in the same time (Tools -> Manage wine version). This list is automatically updated
