    Are you asking if you can install Windows or MacOS games to a Nexus 7? If so, not that I'm aware of. Unless there are some emulators for this type of thing?!?

    You have to understand that PCs and the Nexus 7 have a completely different hardware and OS architecture.

    The PC is an x86 machine running Windows (or Linux) and the N7 is an ARM machine with a RISC archtecture (reduced instruction set) running Android.

    Running the N7 with a Windows program would be like running a gas engine car with diesel fuel - you try that only once, LOL.

    Although because of the pc's power compared to arm it is possible to go the other way and run Android apps on the computer using an emulator or the sdk.
