FL Studio 10 in Mac OS X w/Wine

First of all, I know: FL Studio 10 is not supported for Mac OS X. I'm aware, and I want to do it anyway. I wanted to find out of if someone who has done it successfully before would be willing to give me any advice. I brought up this topic over in the To Do section of the forums, and realized it would make a lot of sense to shift it elsewhere. This seemed appropriate.

Anyway, the demo works fine but I can't seem to get it working as a fully registered product, which may have something to do with how I'm installing it. Here is my process: I opened Winebottler, went to "create custom prefixes" and chose flstudio_10.0_online.exe from Tucows as my install file, setting it as a new prefix. I then clicked install. Everything seemed to go smoothly, and it finished installing as normal. Then, from the status bar, I opened the registry editor in Wine, selected registry > import registry file, navigated to the FL Studio reg file I downloaded from my account page on this site, and opened the file. Then I shut down the registry editor and, when I open FL Studio 10, it seems to function just fine...but only as a demo. It seems like either the registry editor isn't functioning properly when I try to import the reg file, or the install of FL Studio 10 is ignoring the reg info changes.

Any thoughts/suggestions?
