    I bought a sky3ds yesterday and I only have a mac. The problem is that their is no sky3ds disk writer for mac. Any Ideas on how I could get it to run?

    Use parallels desktop. there's a 14 day trial. it works flawlessly and isn't a huge hassle to get set up
    Otherwise install bootcamp and boot into windows on your mac. But i'd rather paralells because it's nice

    You could try running WineBottler for Mac or installing a version of Windows on Bootcamp.

    I've already tried WineBottler multiple times. I'm going to try Parallels now and will report back.

    I installed parallels and did all that is necessary and the Windows is finding the USB Drive but DiskWriter is ignoring it. Any way to fix it?

    press the usb button in the ctrl panel of parallels. (not windows) and try and press the usb drive. it should be listed. if it's listed and you've already selected it, then makesure you're running diskwriter as admin

    Do the Diskwritter need to be installed or its just a executable? For example can I use it on a PC that im not the administrator and cant install anything?

    EvilMaki it's just an executable. Also Arithmatics here's a screenshot.

    Obviously not, have you tried asking elsewhere? Believe it or not GBATemp is not the end all solution for 3DS "hacks"

    I don't understand what else you want. To run a windows program you need windows. Period. There is no magic button that will make a exe run on your mac. Install windows via bootcamp (grab the windows 10 tech preview if you want something free, albeit not 100% stable), use parallels/crossover/vmware fusion, or borrow a friends computer. Those are your options. Bumping the thread repeatedly will not change this fact.
