    How do I can I use an .exe file on a mac?
    Is there really no programm that can be used to change .exe files for use on a mac?
    Please help me to find such a program.
    Someone said stuffit expander to me but I don't see how it can change an .exe file to a .dmg for example..
    I don't even know if that's possible, but maybe there's a backdoor?

    You can't do that. The code isn't compiled for use on OS X.

    The only way to 'use it on a Mac' is to install Windows on said Mac.

    Yes, you can't change .exe to .dmg because it's compiled for windows and btw .dmg is not a binary file ;)

    But you can use windows on your mac and you can also use wine to emulate windows .exe ;)

    StuffIt will extract exe self extracting zip archives. What sort of exe files are we dealing with here? If you're trying to run a program, you'll want to find a mac version if you can. If you need help, you will have to be more specific about your problem...

    QueenZ... What does WINE stand for? Wine Is Not an Emulator.

    WINE is a translator. Huge difference.
