I have spent hours trying to figure this out, automator is the hardest thing to figure out. All I want to do is emulate me doing this

-Open terminal

-type wine

-drag and drop the location of an .exe file

-hit enter

 

Now this should be easy as all I have to do is do run shell script, insert argument and done, BUT IT DOESNT RECOGNIZE WINE!?!?! Pleas help me.

 

Let me clarify.

If I make an automator application that that runs the command "wine" and then inserts text into the space after that Then i will be set. But no matter what I do nothing works. If i set the shell to perl and pass input as argument....It doesnt work the $f and $@ stuff doesnt work.

 

Wine is likely not recognized because is is pearl based so I set it to pearl, but how do i pass and argument over to it?
