AFAIK, you will need to look into Mono:  www.mono-project.com

It's been a while since I've used it, but IKVM could be useful as well (though I think it's geared more towards running Java in .NET): http://www.ikvm.net/

Well seeming that it was written for the PC and Microsoft operating system you will need to have a Virtual Machine and load the Microsoft OS on it with the .Net Framework also installed. A Virtual Machine such as Parallels Desktop. There are one or two others that VM software but I have no experience with them.

You can not install into Mac OS as the executables are different and do not have .Net Framework on them.

There is one more option and that is to use something like this product, Mono Cross platform, open source .NET framework, But you will need to rewrite the Windows application as not all .Net Framework functionality are implemented totally in Mono. Mono run natively on the Mac OS.

Thank you!
