Do not select the .exe with "LR" in its name. Usually
the correct .exe file is already preselected. Finally click OK.

alias file to the desktop. Now you can launch the standalone by
double clicking this icon on the desktop.

settings right click the wrapper icon and select "Show Package
Contents" from the appearing menu. Then double click the
Wineskin icon in the new Finder window.
20. It is possible to add an
XP dialog theme to the standalone, but we do not recommend that,
because there will be various redrawing problems. But you can
change the dialog colors of the standalone and other settings
by running Wineskin (see previous step) and clicking Advanced
> Tools > Config Utility (wincfg) > Desktop Integration.
