The Different virtual machines would be the best way to go unless its a big program like AutoCAD then i would recommend going with BOOTCAMP.
A nice Virtual machine is VMware Fusion

Here is a tutorial on how to install Wine on a mac. Wine is normally used in linux to run Windows exe files. Wine is not 100 percent functional all of the time in Linux, so I would assume the same for Mac. You need to be comfortable with the command line to install Wine on the Mac.

In order to run an exe file on a Mac, you need what is called an emulator. You could try this application - link

It's called WineBottler. And here is a tutorial how to work with it.

How download this program on mac Os


Download is different from Install. It does not look like you can purchase and download Cakewalk SONAR 7 Producer directly from Cakewalk. However, to install on a Mac, you either need BootCamp, or a virtual machine (VM) solution such as VMWare, Parallels, or VirtualBox, and a valid Windows 7 or 8 install.

I NEED TO SAVE MY FILES OF SONY VOICE RECORDER ICD-PX 720 INTO MY MAC, BUT IT DOES NOT RECOGNIZE IT


Hello,
Apparently, what you may already know, Sony does not make software supporting this device on anything other than Windows. So your best bet is to install windows via bootcamp, virtual machine or use wine as an emulator for windows programs. But since we're talking bout drivers the first solution is the one i'd recommend. I would happily help you install windows via bootcamp. You will need an original windows disk and you have to tell me what operating system version you are running.
Best regardsVlad

How do i download movies from a Panasonic camcorder onto a Mac. The CD provided with the cam is for Windows only. What software exists to down load and save movies from my ?


Hello!!

Try to use Apple iPhoto which is a part of ilife Suite.
If that doesn't help then best method is to use Windows Virtual Machine.

1. Install VMware Fusion for MAC.
2. Install Windows OS in VMware.
3. Boot Windows in VMware.
3. Connect your Camcorder to MAC and it will ask Do you want to Connect it with Windows VM or MAC.
4. Select connect to windows.
5. Install the Drivers from provided Camcorder CD to windows.
6. Now you can transfer Photos and Videos.

P.S. : Alternative method to use Windows on MAC is B0otcamp Drive. And you can also Bootcamp Partition on VMware Fusion which will run Faster than any other VM Machine.

Bootcamp Installation On :

OS X 10.6. : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_10.6.pdf
OS X 10.5 : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup.pdf
MacBook Air : http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/Boot_Camp_Install-Setup_Late2010.pdf

Hope it Solves your Problem.

Can't figure out how to download "jumpstart" on Mac. Won't open .exe files when I try to run.


.exe files are PC files. The only way to get the program running is to setup BootCamp with XP or Windows 7

OR you can use a program like Parallels

Hope this info helps!

My macbook shows a white screen and a sound only and after that nothing happens


JUST TRY TO FOLLOW THE STEPS IT WILL BE VERY HELPFUL
Many computer shoppers choose to buy a Mac not only to use OS X, but Windows as well. That is one strong advantage that Macs have in the Mac vs PC war. Apple computers are capable of running Windows, either through Bootcamp or virtual machines.
So, why aren't Windows PC's capable of running OS X? Well, Windows PC's are capable of running OS X. But, it is against Apple's licensing agreement to do so. Thus, this article is intended for educational and demonstration purposes only. If you want to run OS X the best way possible, get a Mac.
*In order for this to work, your computer must have a processor that supports virtualization. If it does not, you may receive errors. For the most part, any newer processor lines: Core 2 Duo, Quad Core, and Core i7 should all work fine.
But, don't expect to not get errors if you are using an older Pentium 4 machine. The processor must be Intel and not AMD*
Because we will be installing OS X on top of Windows through a virtual machine, the first step is to get some virtual machine software. For this demo, we will be using VMware's Workstation 7.
If you do not feel like purchasing Workstation 7 at this time, you can get a limited trial here. The download may take a good half an hour to complete. Workstation is a 512MB file.
Upon download, go ahead and install Workstation 7 onto your computer. The installation process is very simple just launch the installer, and the VMware installer will guide you through the rest.
One thing to note, when it asks your if you want to do a custom install or a typical install, choose typical install. After the installer finishes, restart your computer
Now that you have Workstation 7 installed, you need a pre-configured VMware virtual machine file to install Snow Leopard on top of. Download this file (alt download) and save it to your desktop.
After you have the pre-configured virtual machine file downloaded, you will need to extract the files using WinRAR or another archive utility. If you do not have an archive utility, you can get WinRAR here.
Note: This file is just a disk image framework, no viruses or anything like that. VMware Workstation uses the disk image format to save and contain virtual machines.
Time to start installing Snow Leopard. Launch VMware Workstation by using the path Start > All Programs > VMware > VMware Workstation. Open up the VMware disk image framework that you just downloaded and extracted.
Select File > Open. Navigate to your Snowy_VM folder, open it, open up the next folder that says "Mac OS X 10.6 Server (experimental).vmwarevm, and choose the 2KB file that is named Mac OS X Server 10.6 (experimental). Click the open button to load the virtual machine.
From the Mac OS X Server tab in the VMware Workstation window, click the edit virtual machine settings icon. You may adjust the hard drive size, memory, etc, to your liking.
Select CD/DVD (IDE) and under the Connection settings, select Use ISO Image File. Click the Browse button and navigate to the Darwin_Snow.iso which is located in your Snowy_VM folder. Click the Open button to select the virtual machine.
Now it's time to power on the virtual machine. Click the Power on this virtual machine option. As soon as the process starts, hold down the F8 key on your keyboard. You should be prompted with a boot menu screen.
If you have not done so already, insert your OS X Snow Leopard Install DVD into your computer's CD/DVD drive. So far, you have loaded a workable virtual machine and framework into VMware Workstation.
Now it's time to actually install Snow Leopard onto that virtual machine disk image. You should see some settings icons located at the bottom right portion of the VMware window. Right-click the icon that looks like a CD and choose settings from the pop up menu.
Go back into the boot screen and select the option C Boot from DVD. Press the F8 button on your keyboard for advanced options and type "-v" without the quotes and hit enter. Now, VMware Workstation should boot your Snow Leopard install disc. It may take a couple of minutes to load
That's all there is to it. You should now be at the normal Snow Leopard install screen. Click continue on the first screen that comes up. On the second screen, click the utilities option in the install window and select disk utility. Use disk utility to change the hard drive format type to OS X Extended (Journaled). Exit disk utility and let OS X install completely.
Upon install of Snow Leopard, your virtual machine will restart. After it restarts you will need to do a couple of things to get into Snow Leopard. Select CD/DVD options, like you did before, and use the Use ISO Image File option.

Wen i download a file and then try to open the file it just keeps sayin this program cant be run in dos mode how do i fix it


Does the file end in .exe?
It sounds like you have downloaded a Windows executable to a Macintosh system, and when you click on it it opens in the text editor, which displays the binary contents of the program, which usually contains the message "This program cannot be run in DOS mode."
Windows executables cannot be run on Macintosh computers unless you have also installed Windows, either under Boot Camp or under a virtual machine monitor such as Parallels or Fusion.

Converting to Windows Media Player file seems to take an extremely long time. I am using a Windows XP virtual machine on a MacBook Pro. Is there some way to speed this conversion up. Thanks.


Encoding music is always a long process, in a virtual machine is even longer, if your processor supports it you might enable VT to speed up virtualization. You might also install windows via bootcamp and forget about virtualization at all.

PowerBook G4 does not seem to recognize. (Worked well on previous Apple lap top)


If your Firelite SmartDisk was formatted for a PC, and you are using the Mac side of the G4 it won't. They use a different format scheme. Need to load Parallel, bootcamp, or another virtual PC program, and then Windows. Using that it will recognize it.

If you know another Mac user that is using both sides (Mac and Virtual PC) is a quick way to retrieve data to move it. Be careful reformatting the FireLite. There are some more complex ways. Hope that this helps.

PS: I use a 160GB FireLite on my G4, MacBook Pro as well as my Tower and notebook PCs.
