    I downloaded Photoshop and I go to click the download but an error message keeps popping up. It says that Microsoft Windows applications aren't supported on OS X. Is there a setting I have to change or something I have to download? I'm totally clueless and that doesn't help my frustration. Help please!

    You can't run Windows applications on OS X. You either need to download a version of Photoshop for OS X, or to run Windows apps on your Mac, you need to install Windows via Boot Camp or use Parallels or VMware Fusion.

    If you don't have a Windows license, you can use CrossOver to run some applications. Not all Windows apps are compatible with CrossOver. Check their site for compatible apps.

    For more information about running Windows on your Mac, check out the Windows, Linux & other on the Mac forum.
