Help Orientation materials software

Has anyone been able to download and USE the orientation materials software using Windows XP on a MacBook Pro. For all intensive purposes, if you're running Windows, there is NO reason for the software not to work. MacBooks (and other new Intel Macs) have the same processor as PCs (as I'm told by someone who knows much more about this than I). I have gone as far as to select a practice case or CCS overview only for everything to freeze, not even the Windows Task Manager responds. Tech support was OF COURSE no help. I then tried on a PC, turned off the anti-virus and reset the stupid monitor as "recommended" and proceeded to still get FATAL ERROR.

Never mind it is unacceptable that there is no Mac compatible version available. I can't run it from my office b/c I don't have admin privileges, it would probably give me another fatal error message anyway. Any help would be appreciated as I am beyond frustrated wasting study time on this.

I think there's a problem with the 2011 software because it's not working on my Windows 7 machine as well, try the 2010 version.
