✔ Best Answer
Hello and welcome to the Computing.net Mac forum!

To directly answer your question, the file extension described translates to "file/folder shortcut link", hence .lnk. Therefore, you are trying to open a shortcut from Windows. This will not work in OS X. To run the actual program, install an emulator to run Windows in inside of OS X, or run Boot Camp and set up a dual-boot configuration to run Windows on your Mac, after which you will be able to run the program.

I hope this answers your question satisfactorily.
