    Unfortunately, OS X is still a Unix-based operating system. As with all Linux/Unix OS’s, you must recompile any software originally created for Windows in order for it to work. Realistically, unless you have a lot of experience and time in doing this, you’re better off finding similar software and using that instead.

    YES! You can run Windows applications on a MAC running OS X. It usually requires a copy of Windows to be installed on top of OS X in a virtual environment however CrossOverMac allows you to run applications without installing an instance of Windows.

    CrossOver Mac

    ——– Requires a copy of windows ——–
    Virtual PC

    VMware

    OpenOSX – Wintel

    Good luck!
