I downloaded a program of the internet and i cant open the setup or anything remotely useful becase it says there is no default program to run it on and i dont think i have one that will run it. Any suggestions?

You downloaded these from the internet? Are these legal copies?

You downloaded Windows programs. They won't run in OS X.

I was going to post that earlier but then I thought better of it: I refuse to discuss illegal software (Forum rules and my code of ethics at work here) and wanted to make sure this wasn't the case before giving him the solution. He hasn't replied yet with a plausible answer...

Then they are illegal and the members of this forum refuse to talk about them. This thread will probably be locked.

Upon registration to Mac-Forums, you are linked to the Forum rules which have this to say about pirated software:

4. Illegal Activity:

We choose to follow United States law in regard to what is permissible to be discussed here. Therefore discussion of illegal file sharing, cracked programs, requests for serial numbers, and any other breaches of copyright or other illegal activity are not allowed in these forums.

Please note we do not allow discussions of illegal content. Our forum rules are very clear, I suggest you read them before posting again.
