I am using a MAC and have a download with a .msi file extension. Since I do not use Microsoft for my operating system, I can't open the file. Is there a download for this that I can get to open these files?

An .MSI file is part of the software installation process for windows software.

If you are trying to install a software package, maybe you downloaded the Windows version not the Mac version?

7-zip can extract from MSI files on Windows. There is an "unofiicial" Mac version here:
