    Accepted Solution

    RPM is only used in Linux/Unix, so the best approach would be to create a Linux/Unix virtual machine in Windows. That will work. I use VMware Workstation V9 but there are other virtual machine applications as well. .... Thinkpads_User

    Assisted Solution

    RPMs are for installing software in Red Hat family of Linux and some other versions.
    You can copy RPMs from Linux to Windows using WinSCP or something but what good would that be?
