    I go to Savannah College of Art and Design. The school has a software database that allows us to legally download Windows to use in our home computers. It downloaded as an .exe file, and yes I have the serial number.

    How do I use this with Parallels or if there is no way, can I use it with Fusion or anything else?

    Thanks

    An OS isn't an .exe file. You got something else, I believe.

    By that name, it looks like a program to download the ISO of the OS. You don't actually have the OS files yet.

    No dejavu, it was discussed here and I'm sure plenty of other places.

    you can use macports to download wine. then (in terminal) you will do " wine Windows_XP_64bit_ISO_Downloader.exe"

    then another window will pop-up that will download the .iso
