Did you check their webiste, to see if it runs on Linux??? That would be the best place to start.

If they have a Linux version, then you're all set. If not, then it's not for Linux. Again, you might be able to use Wine to run it, but not sure.

You can look here to see if anyone has run this program in wine, and (possibly) reviews of how it performed (that is, if there is not a linux version available).
