Files with the suffix ".exe" are executable only under the Windows operating system. If you have an Intel iMac you can run Parallels software and actually install Windows side by side with the Mac OS and then be able to run ".exe" files in their native environment. Generally, downloadable program files for Macintosh have a ".dmg" suffix which is a disk image file which contains the actual program. After mounting the disk image on the desktop (by double-clicking) you can then copy the program file inside it directly to your hard drive via click&drag and then run it from the hard drive.

I bought an imac g 3350 . never had a mac before


Download your program. Make sure it is for YOUR OS. A .dmg should appear on your desktop when it is finished. Double click that. It should open a file with an application icon and a drive icon on the desktop. Open your applications folder from your hard drive, then drag the application icon to that. Eject the drive icon from the desktop by dragging it to the trash.

Haven't used Mac in a while but I believe you have to
1) Save the attachments to your hard drive or desktop.
2) Start the TextEdit or AppleWorks application
3) (If Appleworks) Start the Word Processor app
4) Try "File-Open" and locate the file(s) you wish to open

Not running programs downloaded


please check the file extension,

if it's .exe(if no icons show up for the game ), mac may not support it directly, you will have to download cross over chromium from here
www.codeweavers.com/services/ports/chromium/

it doesn't guarantee that the exe will work, since mac uses .app instead of .exe

IMac won't recognize the files on a PC


In order for a Mac to open files generated on a PC, you must have a program capable of reading these files. The new version of Microsoft Office defaults to saving files in a new format which is not compatible with earlier versions. This can be rectified by 'Back Saving' files to an earlier version of Office in the 'Save' menu.
If you have files that you know can be opened with an application that is installed on the Mac, ctrl/click (right click) on the file and chose 'Open With' from the drop down menu. This will allow you to choose the application.

IMAC Downloads


I think you're trying to put windows programs on a apple mac. It won't work directly. If the program is .exe it's windows only. I think this is the case here.
Try http://www.freemacware.com for free mac apps.

Reformatting.


hi there,
you can Format your drive on a Windows machine as "FAT32" and it will be usable both under Mac OS X and Windows. the only thing to make note of is there are some limitations on the FAT32 format, like the 4GB filesize limit and certain naming restrictions.

You can reformat your drive by opening Disk Utility and then reformatting it using that application. in Mac OS X

- In Disk Utility, select the disk.
- Click Erase.
- Choose format from the Volume Format pop-up menu
(select the windows based format).
- Type a name for the disk or volume.
- Click Erase.
- You can use the drive on both the mac and a PC by choosing MS-DOS from the Disk Utility application when you're about to reformat.
