ok, i searched around and couldnt find an answer.

im a new-er mac user and after working on them for the last year at school, i got a 17" Intel Core Imac w/ 2gb ram, i havent had any problems with anything EXCEPT....

i downloaded Windows Media Player for OSX and its a .bin file. the research i found says you are just supposed to open with with Stuffit Expander, but when i do this it simply tries to open it in Excell as a spreadsheet.


im sure its probablly some stupid n00b problem, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Open Stuffit and then drag the .bin file onto the Stuffit icon in the dock. It should open.
