    No Man, you can not use window application on MAC Directly. MAC OS does not allow you to run Windows Application. But there is a way by which you can do this. Mac users can download and install Apple Boot Camp where Windows and Mac OS X coexist and the Mac machine becomes dual boot. Here you can run many of the window application and game that is not available at MAC OS. So download and enjoy. All The best

    yes,you can download & install apple boot camp,where windows and Mac OS X coexist and Mac machine become dual boot also you can use microsoft virtual PC.
    Also CodeWeavers CrossOver Mac is a program that allows users to install and run many Windows-based programs, applications and games in MAC OS X on MacIntel computers. This is based on open source Wine project, which is not an emulator but uses re-implementation of Win32 API to run windows applications natively on target OS. So x86-compatible processor (e.g. Intel or AMD processors) is needed to run an x86 Windows application.

    Friend
    No its not possible to run windows application on Mac Pcs since they run on i pod sort of Operating system,while Windows run on the application of their own.
    But you should not need to worry because many softwares are now available in the market which will help you dual boot your system one with the Mac OS plus the Window OS,one of it namely the Apple boot camp launched by Apple. Download it from the internet and install it. It may definitely help you run windows application.

    Its possible to run windows in a MAC.
    you can either have dual boots when the system starts or you can install windows inside the mac like other programs.
    If you want dual boot then download Apple boot camp which allows windows and mac to coexist in your machine,
    If you want to install inside mac then download the software and install it.
    Just run it like other programs and play windows games.

    Re: Is it possible to run Windows Application on the Mac PC? How to do it?

    Hi Pal,

    Unfortunately, there's no way to run any Windows App on Mac because it is quite a totally different OS and does not allows to run Windows executable files so as to keep the MacBook safe from the viruses.

    If you own only one computer system, which is of course, Apple, then you must install Windows (do a Double Boot) to use Windows Applications on it.

    Thank You..!! Best of Luck.!!
