    jimmy. you need to open a cmd prompt. Start–>Run then type cmd and click ok. OR Program Files–>Accessories–>Command Prompt.

    what possible reason do you windows users have for a utility like that, those file are mac files they only work with a mac so go play with your .iso’s and .rar’s pc users

  3. jimmy says

    hey genius has it ever occurred to you that we are also mac users with a windows partition or maybe we got the file from a friend and it happens to be a movie and we’d like to watch it on our pc, whatever the case maybe idiotic comments like yours aren’t helpful for anyone, so without further ado go f*** yourself, from a BlackBook owner :)/PC owner

    Hey bro i’m sorry to hear your having trouble with this, I actually haven’t used this since my last post so i don’t remember how to use the thing, but look for info on the web maybe where you downloaded the file. I think mine came with a read me file that explains it pretty well but like i said i dont use or even have the program anymore
