    I have Bridge Baron 15 software that says it can be used on both pc and mac, but my macbook pro ( OSX10.7.5 early 2011 ) will not install it. Is there any solution?

    Not without telling us which software it is, and, which MacBook Pro you have - year and model.

    Specs:
    mid 2011 27" imac Core i5 2.7GHz, 8GB, 1TB
    That is an extremely old program, designed for OS 9, im pretty certain it needs Rosetta, i.e. Power pC support.
    Bottom Line it aint working on Lion, you will likely need to update to the latest version(think its around version 23 mark)

    As member "bazanders" pointed out, you can not run that software on your MacBook Pro. Your version of OS X (Lion) can not run PPC or software designed for the classic Mac.
