cant install .exe on mac

Post by Davey223 on Thu 06 Sep 2012, 02:49

Im so sorry if this issue has been addressed but ive been looking around site for a couple hrs and cant seem to find answer. I downloaded Supernatural from tpb (and seeded for quite some time). Problem is in the installation guide it says (first step) to open the simsEP07setup.exe to install. my mac doesnt open .exe. I usually have no problems at all intalling but i cant seem to find an alternative to the exe. any advice? again im so sorry if this seems like a noob question.
I tried downloading the mac fix wondering if it would help but the link doesnt seem to work for me.is the fix the answer here?
thanks in advance

"1. Open the 'Sims3EP07Setup'" the .app file not the .exe file.

there is no Sims3EP07setup.app theres only the sims3EP07setup.exe
I just double checked. I originally opened the file with stuffit expander

So I've been going through the threads on here and I cannot get this to install on my Macbook Pro. I created the DMG file using Disk Utility, and it still won't work. The .rar file has an application in there called The Sims 3 Supernatural Installer, but when I try to open it, it won't run. The .exe files won't open either. Please help if you can - I have been DYING to play this and I don't know how to get it to work! Thank you!

Also, here's a screenshot of everything that was in the .rar file, so you know what I'm looking at:

Hello,

For your and our ease, please open your own topic.
As for your problem, extract the .rar file using Stuffit Expander and then create a .DMG file out of the extracted files.

I think what Admin said is right. You first have to extract the rar file using stuffit expander, then go to disk utility > File > New > Disk Image From Folder than select the Folder that you just extracted
