I’m trying to open an old exe file from 2000 on my Mac, which I guess exe’s don’t work on macs. Somebody said “download wine” which I tried but it said then I needed to download something else.... so I said forget that - it seems each thing wants me to download more things.
Then a friend said “boot camp/parallels” and use that to emulate windows on a Mac. Looks like that is a ton of work too.
How can I open up this 20 year old simple exe file? I just need it so I can do a couple print screens, and drop the characters in to illustrator for a little art project...

Mmmm i think you might struggle on a mac.
There is something called file juicer. I've never used it myself however supposedly it doesnt exactly run the the exe file, it just searches inside it to see if it contains images, Flash games, animations, .ZIP archives etc etc etc. If if finds any, then it should extract and save them. Again i've never used it so do some research beforehand just in case, but if all you're looking for is images or something similar etc from the file then it may be an option?
