I got AspeQt running in a Wine-Bottle too ... the secret is to create a symbolic link from the Windows »COM1« Port to Mac OS X' »/dev/{USB_serial}« (as intel mac don't have built-in on-board serial boards) device file.


Communication works well if you have the right USB2Serial device, like the »Future Technology Devices International, Ltd FT232 USB-Serial (UART) IC« (this is what Linux' lsusb-command tells me). A very good and easy to install Mac OS X driver for this chipset can be downloaded here:



in my WineSkin winery build I did it like this:

cd ~/Applications/Wineskin/AspeQt\ 0.8.8.app/Contents/Resources/dosdevices/
ln -s /dev/tty.usbserial-FTFW83YT com1
