MyInfo on Mac and Linux

Although MyInfo has no native versions for MacOS or Unix yet, it is still possible to run it on such systems. This is a quick guide how to install and use MyInfo under Mac (using Crossover) and under Linux (using Crossover or using WINE).

MyInfo on Mac

To install MyInfo on Mac:

  • Download the trial version of CrossOver and install it.
  • Click “Install MyInfo Now” on the same page and install MyInfo following the instructions on the screen.
  • After MyInfo is installed, try to launch it. If it starts without showing any error message, then this is everything you need to do and you can skip the rest of the instructions.
  • If you however, get an error when you try to start it (“Abnormal program termination”), you can fix that by letting CrossOver use the proper library supplied with MyInfo instead of its own:
  1. Activate CrossOver.
  2. Select the “MyInfo” bottle
  3. Select the “Control Panel” tab, click “Wine Configuration”, and then click “Launch Selected Item”
  4. Select the “Libraries” tab.
  5. Either click the drop down box “New override for library” and find “gdiplus” in the list or type “gdiplus” in the text box.
  6. Click Add to add the “gdiplus” library as shown here:
    OS X Mountain Lion-2013-11-15-22-50-15
  7. Now you should be able to start MyInfo under MacOS without any problems

MyInfo on Linux

Installing MyInfo under Linux using CrossOver is the same as for Mac.

If you use WINE, you need to do the following to configure MyInfo:

  1. Open Crossover. In the top menu, select “Configure” then “Manage Bottles”
  2. Select the MyInfo bottle
  3. Select the “Control Panel Tab”, then click “Wine Configfuration”, then click on “Launch selected item”
  4. Select “Libraries” Tab.
  5. Click the drop down box “New override for library”
  6. Find “gdiplus”. Then click Add. The “gdiplus” library should be listed as here:
    Configuring WINE for MyInfo
  7. Now you should be able to start MyInfo under Linux/Unix without any problems

Small update MyInfo 6.10

MyInfo 6.10 is now available! This is an enhancement release, which includes quite a few improvements.

Tags

Tags now are separated by comma, instead of space character, so you can have multi-word tags like “John Smith”.

Some tag-related features like Rename and Delete tag, as well as the Tags pane are improved too and are now much faster.

Easier management of plugins and dictionaries

You can now install/uninstall plugins and dictionaries directly from the Plugins dialog inside MyInfo (no need to restart). You can also enable/disable dictionaries without uninstalling them.

Insert document before/as first child

We have added shortcuts for inserting documents and tasks before the current one or as a first child of the current one. Just hold the Shift key in addition to the regular shortcut. For example, to insert a document before the current one, press Shift+Enter, instead of just Enter. You can find all new shortcuts in the help file.
