    I purchased Follow Liker a few days ago but i had trouble installing it onto Mac OS X.
    In case any other Mac users where curious...
    -I figured out how to use Wine/WineBottler to run the .exe Installation file on my Mac. WITHOUT installing Parallels, Bootcamp, VirtualBox or VMWare and then installing a Windows OS interface.
    -By running the program through Bootcamp, Parallels etc. your installing around 1.5gb onto your computer. Which is quite a bit.
    -By using Wine/WineBottler your able to never actually install FollowLiker so you save memory and get the same functionality (with the cool Apple textures and look.)
    -The process may seem a bit lengthy...but for me its just as fast if not faster and i save memory.
    MAKE SURE YOU EXPORT YOUR SETTINGS SO THEY ARE NOT LOST!
    *I contacted FollowLiker customer support and sent them the guide i created. I figured i would post it on here for anyone else who needs the help.(Steps are attached)*

    I just downloaded Wine Bottler and followed your steps, but right after step 5 once I've input username/password, I get a dialogue box that says "Failed to connect to server". I press OK and then get another one saying "You must enter a valid username and password".

    I contacted Follow Liker about it, and they said everything is valid and that the issue is to do with possibly an outdated version of Wine Bottler.

    Do you have any info on how to solve this? I've downloaded both versions of Wine Bottler ("development" and "stable") and both lead to the same problem.

    Any insights much appreciated, thanks!

    If you're desperate and have money to spend, I would recommend running it in a windows vps.

    A cheap one with 512mb of ram should be good if you plan on running a few accounts.
