Well, .exe programs are Windows/dos programs. You are on a Mac. Macs can't run Windows software, and Windows can't run Mac programs. The only way to run Windows .exe programs on a Mac is to purchase Virtual PC, but this is a PC emulator, so the program will run considerably slower than it would on an x86 PC. Does this answer your question?jayeskreezy said:Are there any programs that install .exe programs on a mac? Yes, im a new mac user. thanks in advance.
I don't mean to be rude, but it *is* hard to believe that you bought a Mac without realizing that there is no software compatibility with Wondows, never was and never will be. Didn't you do any research? Again, I'm not trying to make you feel bad, but I'm just a bit amazed, for lack of a better word.jayeskreezy said:thanks for your help....i didn't know that at all...oh well, there goes a LOT of free trials out the window, but it's koo...im still adjusting to this mac environment though
I don't think the post was meant to be negative. The OP was vague, and I wondered how to take it. I think the post you replied to was thinking: This person got an email attachment with a .exe and wondering what to do with it. Just my take.AdamR01 said:I hope you're joking...
There are two main sites for finding Mac OS X demos/shareware/freware: Apple - Mac OS X - Downoalds (accessible from your Apple Menu, click the Apple at the top left and choose "Mac OS X Software..."), the other place is Versiontracker's Mac OS X pages...jayeskreezy said:thanks for your help....i didn't know that at all...oh well, there goes a LOT of free trials out the window, but it's koo...im still adjusting to this mac environment though
