Civ 5 launch error

Hi everyone,

For some reason, I just can't launch Civ 5, it worked once and never ever after :/

When I try to open the application, I got a black screen with Civ 5 menu on top, I have to wait for 2-3 mins and then an error box pop saying (Translation from french sorry if it's not perfect):

Civ 5.exe encountered a serious problem and have to exit.
This may be due to an error inside the program or a Wine issue.

And usual "you can report this bug".

I don't know what to do, I tried to unistall/install twice, and it still doesn't work.

I'm on Mac Pro with NVIDIA GeForce 320M

Thank you for answering.

Hmm. Sounds like you're not actually running the Mac version.. try logging into Steam while in OS X and downloading/running that.

I'm not sure who to ask if you really want the PC version to work in Wine.
