You "could" try to use Wine. It's an emulator for Windows API, it works
like a charm for some applications, and it doesn't work at all for
others... Just try to install it and run it! Long time I don't use it,
but as far as I remember you need to have a working windows partitions
(correct me if I'm wrong, please).

The other solution is to create a MS Windows virtual machine (with bochs
or vmware or parallels) and install the programs you need there.

Hope this will help you.
