    Hi,

    Is it true that 'apple mojave' will allow us to run .exe files on Mac?

    Thanks

    No

    Not without either a translation layer like crossover Mac or wine. Or a virtual machine.

    I hired a freelancer from freelancer.com to test my .exe file on Mac he said that what I said. I don't understand why, maybe he lied. So confusing.

    Anyway, thanks.

    Find someone else to test your files. Preferably, someone who understands macOS. ;)

    Yeah, he didn't know anything. Maybe I should check that site out... Always wanted to work on rockets and nuclear power. Maybe even space ships. What could go wrong?

    I could also do freelance in a number of other areas that I know nothing about... hmm....

    Yeah, always check references, and ask to see credentials.

    Why? .exe files are Windows executables. Macs don't run Windows software natively.
