Well, I downloaded a program in which was supposed to be of universal binary right?

It came as a dmg file... so I used MagicIso to extract it. Now the problem is finding the installation file for windows...

any way to install it anyways?

If I put it to disk would it run the installation?

Universal Binaries are usually associated with Macs. Double check that you downloaded the Windows version.

Yeah... Apparently It was the Mac version. I'm not that experienced with Mac's so I was under the impession that "Universal Binary" meant it could be installed with any OS.

Thanks for pointing that out to me. :thumbsup:

Just an update:

Not sure if this is valid or not, but AVG picked up MagicISO as a virus!

I didn't want anyone to download and get infected after reading this post.

If anyone can confirm or deny this I would appreciate it... I'm gonna upload it for analysis as well.

What site did you download MagicISO from? The program itself is not malware.
