This is my first ever guide so cut me so some slack if it is sloppy..... THANK YOU
As most of us know the world still runs a lot on Windows and that many things are still not compatible with Macs. One would be running .exe files which you can try and run through Wine, but you will have very little success. So here is a way for you to run Windows 8 on your Mac through VMware. There are other virtual machine applications you can use to do this, but this is the one I like best so far and the easiest to use.
1. First you need to download VmWare off of the Pirate Bay (VMware link)
2. Second you need Windows 8 (Windows 8 link)
3. Third you need is Windows 8 activator (Activator link)
I have all the files already so if some one could maybe help me put them up here or upload them somewhere that would be greatly appreciated so everybody does not have to keep torrenting these files.
1. Now install your VMware and activate it.
2. Then install you Windows .iso
I suggest using 50gb for the windows and using it on a separate screen instead of integrated. Its all up to what is good for you though.
It is then going to ask for a Product/Cd Key if I remember correctly.
3. Type this in NG4HW-VH26C-733KW-K6F98-J8CK4 key.
It should then start installing
Once everything is installed you will be locked out of some of the Personalize features.
This is were the activator comes in.
4. Drag the activator over from you mac to your Windows machine. If you can't seem to manage that then go to the top of the Windows machine and click on the button that says shared. Once done make your desktop a shared folder and put your activator there so you can get it from the Windows Machine.
5. Once you start up your activator it will have all question marks. Just click the very top ??? button to change the language. Once from there it is self-explantory and you then shall have your Windows activated and able for downloading and using Clraik programs once again.
This video should help if you have any questions

I've worked with VMWare for school to run different operating systems and this seems like the easiest solution to those with Mac's who want to run our programs!
Truuuu that makes sense I will see what I can do then. Thank you
All the piratebay links are broken because they changed their URL,
Here are updated links.
Thanks again for the guide, I'm downloading everything now!
