Can I install SocksEscort on OSX

I have tried several times to get socksescort software (http://seproxysoft.com/en) downloaded and installed on macbook but it appears impossible. I need help with this because i rather prefer using my mac for it than my dell with windows.

Thank you

This is a Windows only product, no MacOS version/binary; hence installing it on MacOS is not possible.

helge000 is correct.  The SockEscort application is Windows-only application and cannot be installed on OSX directly so you have 2 options.

1. Find an OSX equivalent application .. there are some OSX Proxy applications but nothing quite the same as SocksEscort.  You could look at MacProxy (http://www.tidalpool.ca/macproxy/) or ProxyCap (http://www.proxycap.com/) or Proxifier (http://www.proxifier.com/) or search online for other applications.

2. OSX supports a number of VirtualMachine applications such as Parallels, VMWare Fusion, VirtualBox which allow you to run Windows XP/7/8 etc on your MacBook and therefore you could run SocksEscort under a VM environment or you could setup dual-boot the MacBook so that you could run Windows OR OSX.  
Depending on your usage of SocksEscort this may or may not fit your needs.

If you only want the Proxy connection, you can use VPN services, see here:
