.exe files are designed for Windows, not OS X. This program will not run on your computer.

✔ Best Answer
You can't make a windows program into a mac program. You can look for a version of the program that was written for a Mac, but like ilack said, it won't work on a mac. A .rar file is simply a file that was compressed and Unrarx allows the file to be uncompressed and read. It doesn't convert it into anything.

"But I got the UnRarX it makes it into a Mac program"

Top marks for optimism, but it is misplaced. You need a specific OS X program, not a Windows one.
