Can I run Microsoft games on a Macbook pro?

I have a disk full of Microsoft games call 'Play! The Ultimate Casual Game Collection'. I tried added a few of the games and a pop up pops up and says: You can’t open the application “MagicEncyclopediaFirstStory.exe” because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on OS X.

How do I get those games to be supported?

  • Most windows only games use Microsoft Visual C++ and/or Microsoft DirectX, 11 being the latest version. They are all, hint hint, Windows only. If you want to play Windows games on your mac, you gotta dual boot Windows.
