    i was wondering.. because warcraft III is a PC & Mac cd-rom... what can i use to get the pc installer to open on it... or is there any way to extract it.

    because i wanted to use the .exe file in my Crossover because then i can use autorefresh for warcraft III... but only the macintosh installer shows up... but when i put it in a friend's pc it show's the installer for pc...

    Please Help Thanks Cheesytoe :D

    Chances are it is probably hidden so it doesn't show up on the mac side.

    If you are comfortable putting things into terminal enter

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles ON
    killall Finder

    this will cause any hidden files to show up and then you can navigate through any hidden folders on the disk.

    To revert

    defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles OFF
    killall Finder

    If you aren't comfortable there are various small third party applications that basically run this commands.

    The CD is hybrid so the Windows files are actually on a separate part of the CD rather than just hidden. Showing hidden files won't help.

    Unfortunately, I don't know how to get at the Windows area short of VMware.
