    okay im not too savvy with mac because its my first one but..
    i have a probem with wine bottler
    i have been told that winebottler lets you (the main idea) convert .exe to a something like .dmg or something i can use on a mac
    i have world of warcraft
    it will take friggen ever and another 40$ to do this so this is the last resort so...
    i have world of warcraft (WOLTK) private server on windows and i want to run on my mac
    any ideas of any other ways or some way i can do it on winebottler??
    thanks in advance!

    Short Answer: Winebottler wont let you do that
    Long Answer: Winebottler is actually an emulator that lets you run a .exe in a distributed package that packages the .exe with a windows emulator for Mac OS X. It is much simpler just to purchase either the Mac Version, or a product designed to RUN said program on a Mac, such as CrossOver Games Edition (I have CrossOver Pro and it works wonders, Ive managed to half-abandon Windows). Its probably quicker and easier just to get the Mac Version of the software or run it on a standalone, limited use PC.
