Can anyone help me out. I have a program called arcworks and it shows up on my desktop as an icon with the title of D11v25a1.exe. I can't figure out how to open it to save my life and i have to use it for school. Fuck me for being computer illiterate.

Can any one please help me??


Thanks

Maybe you should have bought a PC instead.
If it's an Intel Mac, but into Windows and open it there.

Flame suit on for mac user's wrath.

You cant' just copy the exe file from a windows computer to a mac and expect it to work.


Is that what you did?

Ooops, bought a Mac to run with the cool crown for school, except that OSX won't run the software you need?



Better get Parallels and a copy of XP or Vista.

Sort of, It was a program that we had to download off the net. So I guess I'm pretty much screwed.


Thanks for the help.

OS X cannot run Windows programs.

Before dropping the $$$ on Parallels, try Virtualbox. It's an open source virtualization program backed by Sun. You will still need a valid Windows license. For the time being you can download Windows 7 Release Candidate from MS for free.
