Use BootCamp and install Wind

Use BootCamp and install Windows, or use Paralells to install Windows in a virtual machine. Or, try the beta of CrossOver Mac:

Being an .exe file it's meant for Windows or DOS. Mac OS just won't run it as-is.

Actually... OS X can deal with certain .exe's without emulation or Windows...


And before even considering installing Windows on a Mac... try
