Can't download Alveo on Safari

I'm using MacBookPro and I trying to download Alveo but it won't let me.

this the massage I got. " Safari can’t open the file “Alveo1.5.20_Installer.exe” because no available application can open it"

Can anyone help me please.

Alveo will not run under MacOS, only Windows. If you're using a Mac you need to run Parallels or Bootcamp. Then you can download Alveo using Chrome.



Thank you Greg

I know I'm so dumm. What is Parallels or Bootcamp?


Parallels opens a virtual window on Mac OS which allows you to run Alveo directly from the window.

Bootcamp sections off a portion of your hard drive, which you decide how big (how many GB) and you can then install the Windows operating system on your Mac and you can choose at start-up when to run Microsoft Windows or Mac OS.

I trust this helps.
