To run Windows on a mac, you can run a virtual machine, or make it dual boot. However, those approaches use a load of disk space, and memory. There is another approach, which would be obvious to anyone from the Linux world, but it also applies to OSX. – It’s called Wine, and it is available for download here; https://wiki.winehq.org/MacOS

You will also need to download XQuartz, which is an X11 windows server, and is available here; https://www.xquartz.org/

With that, you can then simply right click your exe, and press Send to > Wine Stable, and it might just run. The interface looks quite different, and some applications I tried didn’t work.
