    I just bought myself a Mac Os X, and I'm loving it. But! I'm trying to download/install some stuff, and apparently i need MagicISO. I've tried to download, but it seems that it wont work on a Mac... So, can anybody tell me what to do now?

    What stuff? Macs can't run .exe files, so none of those programs will work.

    MagicISO is a windows program. OSX uses disk images, not iso's.

    What program are you trying to install?

    And your title was misleading. I was coming in here looking for a job.

    If it's a regular .iso image just double click it and it will mount in OSX.You might want to consider a bit more detail in the thread title.

    Is it an .exe file (inside the ISO) ? If so, it won't work. You'll need the Mac version.

    In your Iso hunt you'd be looking for a OSX or dmg version of Sims.

    Or, you know, you could always pay for Sims2 instead of bittorrenting the wrong version...

    If you're downloading Sims2 from a torrent, it is piracy and discussion and assistance should not be given/found here.
