ResScan 5.9 and Mac Install Problem

ResScan 5.9 and Mac Install Problem
This is likely "self-created" (due to my lack of technical skills), but when I tried installing ResScan 5.9, I received a message, indicating that "You can't open the file setup.exe because Microsoft Windows applications are not supported on macOS." 

I realize I'm probably messing up right from the get-go (maybe not being able to find a zip file?), but that's where I'm stuck.  Huh

Anyone able to help, at a very basic level? TIA.

RE: ResScan 5.9 and Mac Install Problem
The Basic answer is that Windows programs can't run on Macs - anything that comes as an .exe file won't run on a Mac.

The best answer for looking at your CPAP data on a Mac is OSCAR, which you can download by clicking on 'OSCAR' in the black menu bar at the top of this page.

Perhaps a Mac person can give some advice on the download and install process.

ResScan is a Windows only software.  If you need software for a Mac, I suggest that you use OSCAR (download link is in the name). The OSCAR link is at the top of every page here, as well.

You can install Parallels Desktop on your mac. So you can run the Resmed software without any problems.
