thanks guys, i gave up wine and i tried Parallels desktop 7 but then finally resorted to VMWare Fusion, much better software. i installed windows xp on it just keep windows lighter, and stop it using so much of my resources when using both at same time.
@ hatryst thanks but the softwares which you are talking about like live messenger for MAC is a pieces of crap, it keeps crashing, doesn't support offline messageing, and many other cool features are missing, more over i have better alternative to live messenger like trillian or palringo. they are all free and available in appstore. more over only for these software i won't be installing windows, its mostly my work softwares like for accounting or managing warehousing etc. they all do not have MAC versions, and moreover in my office i am the only one with MAC, so can't change to any other alternative also.
Thanks anyways guys, but installing wine is really very hard, and i think its not worth your time, better resort to other alternatives like Parallels desktop or VMWare Fusion, for some reason i prefer VMWare Fusion as parallels desktop need to be updated regularly with each MAC major software update. happened to me when i updated from Snow Leopard to Lion and mind it it was paid update from parallels desktop, but then i found VMWare and it did not needed to be purchased again when i updated from Lion to Mountain Lion.
