    Hi Everybody,
    I recently lost a few important programs off my mac accidently (ichat, big bang board games) is there anyway to maybe download or replace these programs they both came with my mac and i'd hate to lose them.


    I downloaded a zipped file and when unziped it contained a file reading setup.exe but when i tried to run it a just got a bunch of gobbledygook any ideas what to do?

    thanks guys.

    you should be able to reinstall the missing applications from the disks that came with you mac.

    .exe files are windows executable files that will not run in OS X, you will need to run windows to use .exe files.

    The games and iChat are on your original install disks.
    .exe files only work in Windows. OS X doesn't know what to do with an .exe.
