No need to install emulators, virtualizers or boot into other operating systems – WineBottler runs your Windows-based programs directly on your Mac. This is possible thanks to a Windows-compatible subsystem, which is provided by the great OpenSource tool Wine.
WineBottler packages Windows-based programs like browsers, media-players, games or business applications snugly into Mac app-bundles.
WineBottler does Automated Installations:
Select from a wide range of software for which WineBottler offers automated installations. It is as easy as hitting "Install" – and WineBottler will leave you with a neat app on your desktop. WineBottler does not come with the programs themselves, but with scripts, that take care of downloading, configuring and installing everything into an app for you.
WineBottler can pack your .exe into an Mac .app ...
Double-click your .exe or .msi and convert it into an app with WineBottler. You can run the generated app like every other program on your Mac. For advanced users, WineBottler gives you a selection of options: install special dependencies and even turn your .exe into a self-contained app - that is an app, that contains everything to run it... even on other Macs. Porting to OS X never was easier ;).

Or just run that .exe.
You don't care about generating an app and just want to run it? Double-click the .exe, choose "Run directly" and Wine will run it in a generic environment.
Enjoy, it's free!
Like Wine, WineBottler is free software. We've made it out of our own needs and now we share the result. If you are happy with it, you can keep the project rolling by sending a small Donation.
