First to the moderator, if you find this post to be in the wrong place feel free to move it.
I have a G4 powerPC running 10.4.11 and I need to run a .exe program for a new job. The program allows me to upload photos to my employer. I am looking for an easy and inexpensive way to run this program. Thanks in advance for any and all help.

to run an exe file you need to run windows on the mac. I did this on my G4 using Virtual PC.

Virtual PC like has been already mentioned is one of the only ways I can think of on a Power PC to run Windows programs. It's very slow but for that task probably will be fine.

yeah VPC was never super fast but it worked.

if you use/install windows 2000 you gain more speed than installing xp. running xp on a G4 was noticeably slower.

Is it a proprietary piece of software? Perhaps there's an OS X equivalent we could help you find? Perhaps it's just FTP software?

Thanks for the replies, I am not sure if it proprietary or not. It is something called mcs360. If I decide to go the virtual PC route do I also need to purchace windows as well?
