Can I download and install Solaris software for my CentOS VM?


My VM image is Linux Centos 5.2, and I need to download some software from the internet to run on my VM's OS.

The available download is for Solaris x64. Is this compatible with my OS?

I'm sure this is a dumb question, but I know very little about Linux.

I don't think you can run software built for Solaris on Linux. What is the software? Is the source code available? If so, you may be able to build it on Linux and use it.

Thanks. I am trying to download Pro/E for my company. I do not have access to the source code. I will have to figure out a work around then.

Perhaps someone can suggest an alternative to Pro/E? I don't use that kind of software, so I don't have any recommendations, I'm afraid.
