    As the responses above have said, there's no way to do it natively, though there are several options to do so. I haven't done any of them, so can't comment on which works best. Parallels is another option. Here are some articles on that method.

    Install Windows on a hard drive partition or via a virtual machine running windows.

    The OS X it self will not run exe files, you will need to install Windows on the hard drive, or install a virtual machine within your OS X to run any exe file

    Or get a Mac compatible version of the program you are trying to run.

    I have VMWare with Windows 10 running on my iMac 27 and that's the only way you can run an .exe file.
