If only Windows versions of a piece of software is available, you
could try using WINE (https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine). It
allows Windows programs to run under Linux. You can also try the
program's website support forums to see if other have been successful
either getting and compiling source code (if it is available) or
installing the software with WINE.

Also, this mailing list is used for testing development releases of
Ubuntu on laptops and should not be used for support. For support,
use:
ubuntu-users at lists.ubuntu.com
or see

Enjoy Karmic in a few days!

Scott
