    Alright guys here is a little bit of a complex question (or at least I think it is)

    I downloaded crossover because I wanted to use some windows programs like .exe

    the program I want to use requires .NET Framework so I installed that.

    However, in order to insteall .NET Framework I need to get internet explorer for windows. Microsoft Interent Explorer 5.01.

    I went on this site http://www.microsoft.com/windows/internet-explorer/download-ie.aspx tried downloading internet explorer 8 and 7 but when I launch this comes up

    "Extraction Failed. Newer Windows Version Needed"

    Does anybody have any idea what to do?

    Thanks!

    That's going to be a mess trying to get running if you even can. I'm going to suggest a virtual machine or Windows via Boot Camp.

    Tried bootcamp, if I remember correctly it said I needed some type of installation disk to run properly, I don't have anything windows related though, same goes for a virtual machine. Unless you know of a way to get around this?

    Buy a copy of Windows?

    I like the concept of Crossover but it lacks compatibility.

    it can run, but get ready to do a lot of terminal commands and troubleshooting

    Yeah I know that, I'm just saying that I don't have a copy of windows which is why I can't run bootcamp.
