Trouble installing a steam game on my mac

Hey folks! This is my first ever topic here, and the first time I try any kind of application like this, so please bare with me.

I bought "L.A. Noire" from steam yesterday, which is a windows only game. My PC was way too shitty to handle it, and I therefor thought I should try running it on my macbook pro. I run Mac OS X 10.6.8

I downloaded Steam for windows, and got it running. I then started the download of the game, and it went perfect. Then, it wanted me to download Direct X, which failed. 

I don't know much about scripts or codes or anything, but from what I can see, when I tried to install direct X manually from javascript:nicTemp(); it failed. It seems like playonmac can't read the file or something?

When installing direct X, i got the following message:

(from the installer playonmac opened).

After direct X auto install failed in steam, the game was ready to press play through steam. When I press it, nothing happens. Steam thinks I'm running the game, but as far as I can see, it doesn't.

I understand that this is something that's wrong because of my lack of knowledge, but I would appriciate some help. Hopefully the easiest way ever, as I don't understand too much.






These are the logs if I didn't pick the wrong ones.

Oh shit. Are there any other way to get it working without bootcamping? I understand if you guys don't want to advertise for other programs.

Thanks for the quick answer!

Can't speak for others, but I think the point is more to stay focused on PlayOnLinux/PlayOnMac, after all that's what those forums are for.
The second problem for you is that I know very little about Macs, so I definitely can't help you with bootcamp.

Cheers for the feedback!
Too bad those money was waisted then. At least it was 50% off.
