Eric from Riverside, CA

Episode 1462 (2:25:43)


Eric wants to know if he can play an old Windows game on his new Mac. Leo says he might able to. He can try using WINE. The other way is to run Windows virtually through VirtualBox (free), or VMware. Then he can run Windows virtually, and install the game in the Windows environment.

Another option is called CrossOver Mac, but it's not free. Leo thinks it's probably easier just to go to and play there.
