    Hello, am very new to all this so please dont laugh if this is a silly question.

    I am a teacher and subscribe to a website that offers lots of interactive resources however they are only available in .exe.

    I have emailed them to ask them if they will make them available for mac users, but wondered there was anything I could get to run them which would mean I didnt need to run bootcamp.

    Thank you!

    Only options are Virtual machines through Parallels or VMware Fusion which let you install windows and run it with out leaving OS X.
    Or running Crossover Mac.. which sort of emulates parts of windows.

    edit: Oh, one thing I forgot.. Depending on the EXE you can peek inside using a program called File Juicer. This is usually for self extracting exe files.
