    They are two entirely different things. The first is an executable file, and the latter is a "container" structure for files.

    Short answer: no.

    If you want to run some programs that are in .exe form, you will need to install Windows on your Mac.

    Doh! Yeah, that's true. Crossover is another option for running (some) .exe files on your Mac. Thanks for the reminder.
