Open With... Problem

I recently downloaded Bear Share, a file sharing program like napster, kazaa, etc... Anyway I saved the file in my home directory and when I click my home icon on my desktop and look at the file I just downloaded, its just a white page. I double click the little icon page and I get an Open WIth... dialog box. What can I open such a setup program with? The filename is BSINSTALL.exe, but what should I open that with, or should I do this all through a terminal, if so how?
Thank You.
