Mac Extraordinaire :

Greetings,

You cannot run .EXE files on your Mac because they are Windows Executable files.

The only way you can run .EXE files is if you do it through Virtual PC, Parallels, Boot Camp, Vmware or Crossover.

Where was this program downloaded from? They may have a Mac version of it available.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Hello

Mac Extraordinaire :

Click that link and verify that you can play it.

Customer:

can play but it still downloads as an exe file

Mac Extraordinaire :

It does not appear that you will be able to "download" the game because they do not have a Mac version of the executable readily available.

However, you can continue to play the game by playing it on that page in your Internet browser.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Often times, this is the case when there is not a compatible Mac version of the program, but you will not have any problems using the web browser version of the game.

Customer:

My wife needs to get a game like this that is iMac compatible, is there anything like that out there.

Mac Extraordinaire :

It is my suggestion to always use the browser version of the game for any such type of game because it does not require any installation and any extra permanent hard drive space. Personally, I never install such types of games for said reasons.

Mac Extraordinaire :

Well, she can play the game on her iMac through the web browser, correct?

Customer:

not the full version

Mac Extraordinaire :

Oh ok

Mac Extraordinaire :

You can obtain the Mac version at the following website: http://www.gamehouse.com/mac-games/macintosh-super-texttwist

Mac Extraordinaire :

You will be able to install that version on the iMac.
