Double-click your.exe or.msi and convert it into an app with WineBottler. You can run the generated app like every other program on your Mac. For advanced users, WineBottler gives you a selection of options: install special dependencies and even turn your.exe into a self-contained app - that is an app, that contains. WineBottler is a 'wrapper' interface for Wine, an open source API layer that allows Unix based operating systems to run Windows applications. Navigate to the download page and grab the DMG file for WineBottler. You will need a Windows installation file (such as an.exe, or executable file) to continue.
Wine is an open source program for running Windows software on non-Windows operating systems. While it’s most often used on Linux, Wine can run Windows software directly on a Mac, too–without requiring a Windows license or needing Windows running in the background. This isn’t necessarily the best option if you want to. Wine isn’t perfect, and not every application will run ideally. Some applications will crash or not run at all. And are more rock-solid options, but they do add more overhead and require a Windows installation. For apps that do work, however, Wine can be extremely useful.
There are several ways to get Wine on a Mac. The official project website at WineHQ now provides of Wine for Mac OS X. However, those aren’t necessarily the best option. These Wine binaries allow you to run Windows software, but don’t provide any helpful graphical tools for installing and setting up common applications, so they’re best for advanced users already familiar with Wine. Instead, you should probably consider one of the third-party projects that take the Wine source code and build a more convenient interface on top of it, one that helps you quickly install and configure common applications. They often perform tweaks that you’d have to perform by hand if you were using the barebones Wine software. They include their own Wine software, too, so you only have to download one thing.
Third-party tools include,, and. There’s also the free, which makes installing classic games easy, and the commercial, which is the only application here you have to pay for. We’ll be using WineBottler for this tutorial, as it seems like the most popular option among Mac users. It can create Mac.app bundles for Windows programs. The other third-party applications will work similarly, though some (like CrossOver and Porting Kit) may be much more streamlined for the apps they actually support—so if you’re looking to run a specific game, it may be worth checking to see if the other apps support that game for easy setup.
How to Run Windows Software on a Mac With WineBottler To get started, download. Be sure to download a version that works on your release of Mac OS X. When this article was written, that meant OS X El Capitan and Yosemite users needed to download version 1.8.
Open the downloaded DMG file. Drag and drop both Wine and WineBottler applications to your Applications folder to install them, just like you would any other Mac application. You can then launch WineBottler from your Applications folder.
WineBottler lists a number of different programs you can easily install. For example, you could install various versions of Internet Explorer if you needed to test websites with them on your Mac.
The Windows version of Steam is available, and which could allow you to run some Windows-only games on your Mac. Choose any of these options and WineBottler will automatically download, install, and configure these applications for you. The installed application will appear under “On My Mac” in the WineBottler window. You can uninstall them from here, if you like. Click an application and it will launch in a window, receiving its own icon on your dock. To run another application that doesn’t appear in the WineBottler list, you can simply download it, then right-click or Ctrl-click its.exe file to select Open With >Wine.
WineBottler allows you to quickly execute the.exe directly, if you like. You can also choose to install the application in a Mac.app file created by WineBottler. If you choose to convert it to an OS X application bundle, you will be taken to the Advanced screen in WineBottler. Provide the.exe file used to install the application and you can install it as an.app using the options here. Depending on the application, you may need various third-party libraries from the Winetricks list, DLL override options, or runtime arguments here to make it work. However, that often isn’t necessary–just executing.exe files directly with Wine should generally work. If you can’t get an application working, you should perform a web search for its name and “wine” or “winebottler” for tips on what advanced functions you might need. Bear in mind that WineBottler is best if you have a single program or handful of programs that work well.
If you plan on testing out a lot of software or you use software that Wine doesn’t support well, you’ll have a much better time just running it in a virtual machine. These offer more or less guaranteed compatibility with Windows software on a Mac.
I was wondering if there is any software around that can convert.exe files to.dmg files The only time it would help to do that would be if the.exe file was a self expanding Zip archive. And then only if the contents were even usable on a Mac..exe files are a Windows executable. A program in other words. Unless you're running Windows in an emulator such as Parallels or Virtual PC, they won't do you a bit of good.
If you could even find a program to decompile (reverse engineer) an.exe file and recompile for the Mac OS, it would be illegal to do so most of the time. Pretty much any commercial software forbids such action. Also, quite a bit of.exe files you may download are installer programs for Windows.
So it would produce yet more.dll,.exe and other Windows-centric files. Aug 1, 2007 5:55 AM. The iBook G4 can't run Parallels because it is a PowerPC, and not Intel, but it can run these solutions to get Windows to run: - which Kurt already mentioned - GuestPC Mind you, you will need a copy of Windows on CD for all except the WINE solutions.
WINE solutions though are not as compatible as the full Windows emulator and virtualization solutions. The iBook G4 is usually only fast enough to run Windows 2000 or older versions of Windows. If you want to run XP or Vista, you'll want a newer Intel Mac that was released 2006 and later. The Intel solutions are typically virtualization and not emulators.
Those have other solutions for running Windows Applications listed here (some are the same as PowerPC, others are not): - a WINE like solution Two programs which will open Windows executible ZIP files are and. If neither can open those ZIP files, then in all likelihood it will need an emulator/virtualization solution above. I've made a list of software search engines on my * that you can find Mac native equivalent titles to Windows compatible titles. - * Links to my pages may give me compensation.
