    Short answer: no.

    Long answer: it would take you years and years and still no

    .exe is windows specific. Sorry.

    Obviously a mac user: note the use of the word 'app' and the bashing of Windows.

    Well, you could install Wii Linux, then install Qemu and Wine to run Windows executables though it would be slow. As for a direct emulator, the easiest way would probably be to add an x86 emulator to ReactOS and port ReactOS to the wii.

    That's why you run it in seamless mode to run wine in x84 mode.

    x84? Are you on drugs?

    The Wii uses a PPC processor and also has an ARM processor. In case you don't get it, neither does native x86. The best (Hahahahaha, what a joke) bet would be to port something like Bochs (Which is an x86 emu).

    Possible? sure!
    Viable? Hell will freeze over first...

    Wine can run on top of qemu(which is another emulator that does a lot more than just x86). It's how darwine can run some shit on a ppc mac.

    Edit Since 2004 http://lists.terrasoftsolutions.com/piperm...une/014468.html. Would still be horrendousley slow and pointless.

    Well if it's a game maker, someone could come up with a game maker engine port, esp if the rules/game logic, graphics and sounds are stored outside the exe. Still, that would be a big if, but at least it wouldn't be emulation.

    LOL. You people are pathetic...just make an accessory that attaches to the Wii Remote and it will allow you to run .exe's or even PS3 games...I spent a total of two years making mine!
