    Question EXE files on Mac's.
    Hey.
    I just bought my first Mac, and since I had a PC before, I have lots of .exe files that don't open on Mac's.
    Is there any way to open them?

    Thanks, Sean.

    Welcome to the Forum. No - start a new collection or install Parallels/BootCamp/VM Fusionware and run windows in that.

    Thanks for the welcome.

    EDIT: doesn't matter I know what you mean.

    those files are windows specific, so one assumes there are equivalent ones out there for the Mac.

    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
