    When I click setup.exe it asks to open with another file? What do I need to do to install it?

    Not sure how it works, but you can't install an executable file in OS X. I would imagine that you have to install a virtualization setup that came with Virtual PC, then inside virtual PC you open setup.exe

    Again, not sure, just a guess.

    It's sometimes hard to return opened software. Hopefully the place you bought it is understanding of your mistake and lets you return it. Be sure to explain why you're returning it and (if at all possible) exchange it for the Mac version.

    If he opened the product, then cmm can expect a restocking fee. The restocking fee is much less than the price of the product.

    GuestPC is an alternative to Virtual PC. I've never had problems with it plus its a lot cheaper than VPC
