    I didn't really know where to put this so mods feel free to remove it and put it in the right category .

    I just install linux on my computer (Ubunto) . I was loving it for a few hours , up until I tried to install xrumer and a few of my other tool's .It seem's that xrumer can only run on windows OS's which I should have already known .But me being a dumb ass install linux with out backing up my OS . I really didn't start panicing until I tried Wine (a VM add on for linux ) which didn't work . And I tried virtual box's but realized I needed a windows iso to run it. Can any one give me some advice on what to do next . I feel as though I have no more options so if any one can give me some tips I would really "REALLY" appreciate it .

    Hey Ziplack , I think you misinderstood . I have linux installed but I can't get Wine or virtual box too work . Wine just reads me an error message and I can't seem to get a good iso image for Vbox.

    Just get Virtualbox. It's the best desktop virtual machine for Linux.
    Then you have to install windows, there's no other way. But if you manage to do it then it will work just fine.
