Post Did anybody get this running using Wine on a Macbook?
I am trying to run the program using the Wine emulator on a Macbook and did anybody get the Beta version to work?

wine RobotC.exe
wine: Call from 0x7bc3bfe8 to unimplemented function mfc90.dll.7118, aborting
wine: Unimplemented function mfc90.dll.7118 called at address 0x7bc3bfe8 (thread 002e), starting debugger...

There were a few threads regarding running ROBOTC on Wine before, and I believe one user got it to work:

I have been able to get v3.02 working for Ubuntu Linux using WINE (writing code, compiling, setting up NXT/Tetrix motor controllers). However, I am wondering if, under WINE, there is a USB compatibility layer. I'd try it myself, but I don't have a brick with me that I'd take the risk of bricking because of a faulty re-flash caused by WINE incompatibility.

I also agree that native support would be nice, especially since the FIRST Field Control System has a Linux version; all we'd need is a Linux version of LabView and a Linux version of RobotC. Still, I doubt it will happen since the developers have already stated that Linux/Mac are out of the question, since it would lower the quality of the Windows version. Not to insult or any thing, with the recent bugs who'd notice a couple more?

You can try getting in touch with that user to see what they had to do.
