    Default Anyone here use Boxer to run DOS games on a Mac?

    I'm trying to use it to run Elder Scrolls: Arena from the official Elder Scrolls site. It works just fine for Daggerfall but when I try to install Arena I get the message:

    Arena106Setup is a Microsoft Windows game or application, which Boxer does not support.
    Will the game therefore run only with dos emulators on a Windows computer or is there a way to get it running on a Mac? I can't find an answer anywhere on the interwebs so I'm asking you guys.

    I just checked, and the Arena106.exe file is actually a self-extracting RAR--so as long as you have some application which can open RAR files you should be able to use it to manually extract the content. (And no, I don't know why Bethesda decided to put a self-extracting RAR inside a Zip file, just one of those mysteries mankind was not meant to probe...).

    Thank you, factotum, you are awesome. That did the trick. Why there was a RAR inside a Zip I have no idea... I downloaded a RAR opener and it worked just fine.
