Need help with IQfeed on OS X

Has anyone been able to get IQfeed to work on OS X. I installed the Mac version but it won't run. I called tech support at IQfeed and they told me someone got it to work with WinOnX2 Pro (WinOnX2 Pro is basically WINE), which I purchased and was able to install the windows version of IQfeed software. Everything seems to work, except when input my login and password to login, the connect button does not light up. It stays grayed out and will not let me push "connect" to login.

The support guy said this is an unofficial fix. And he can't guarantee it will work. But I am hoping someone will have experience.

Thanks in advance for any advice that can be given

Once it runs, then you use the socket API to login. I use iqfeed on osx all the time. You have to have a developer api account of course.
