I downloaded Keepass Professional Portable edition and it works perfect on Windows but I can't seem to open .exe files on mac. I'm not sure if it's because school computers won't allow it or if I'm just not entirely familiar with mac. Any suggsetions on how I can run my KeePass portable on mac? I have mono on my flashdrive and tried using the batch file method but I have no idea how to make batch files on mac.

Macs don't run .exe files. In this case, "portable" means any Windows machine.

Not sure, the keepass support says something about portable with Mono but the mono is an exe file also so I'm not sure. – Howdy_McGee Feb 20 '13 at 19:24
@Howdy_McGee: The Windows version of Mono is a .exe; you'll need the OS X version of Mono instead. – Gordon Davisson Feb 21 '13 at 21:54
