Mac:

Download XQuartz  (if the link breaks, search for it on the Internet) needed to run Wine.
Install XQuartz and if there is a 64 bit version checkbox in the dialog, you can check it to run the 64 Bit version of BoincTasks.

Now install winehq (if the link breaks, search for winehq) the Mac installer.
If there is a 64 bit version checkbox in the dialog, you can check it to run the 64 Bit version of BoincTasks.

The last step is to download the latest download BoincTasks version and install it like you would any other Mac program.
Wine wil start automatically and runs the Windows installer.

if everything works as advertised you should be running BoincTasks on your Mac, like on any Windows machine.

Another option is a bundled installer like Winebottler:

Just search for WinebBottler and install it.
The last step is to download the latest download BoincTasks version and install it like you would any other Mac program.
Wine wil start automatically and runs the Windows installer.
