installing software

I've been given some software by a friend as an .exe file. Whenever I try to install it Mac says it cannot find the install software. Is that because I'm missing an install file ? Any ideas ?

    You're trying to install Windows software, I think. You'll need the Mac version.

    Thanks Hassan. I was trying to install Virtual PC in one instance which presumably is Mac, and the other was a mirror disc file downloaded from the net. But that would certainly explain it .

    To be clear, there are Windows versions of VPC.
