    "This program cannot be run in DOS mode. "
    So i read a few forums but I didnt really get an answer to this... I am trying to download a program and got this message "MZˇˇ∏@∫ !∏L!This program cannot be run in DOS mode." With a bunch of nonsense after

    I recieved it once a few weeks ago but figured there was something wrong with the prgm I was trying to DL or it didnt support Mac... I didnt download windows or anything like that and the program I am trying to download is Mac-accessible.... What do I do???

    Your Mac OS details and program name may help.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!

    You will encounter this message if you attempt to run a Windows program. Either you have downloaded a Windows only program or you inadvertently downloaded the Windows version of an app that works on both platforms. What is the app?
