The only way to install Windows Software on OS X is to use an emulator like:

There are three ways to get Windows programs working on a mac.
1. Use an emulator (Answer #2)
2. Buy a windows licence and use bootcamp to make the mac dual-boot between OSX and Windows.
3. Buy a windows licence and use a virtual machine like parallels, VMWare fusion, or VirtualBox

Max OS does not support windows programs directly, so one of the above options are the only ways to go.
