OCAD is a Windows software. However, OCAD runs on Linux using Wine.

We installed Wine on Ubuntu Desktop and run OCAD afterwards without any problems.

Wine is a free software and enables Linux users to run Windows applications without a copy of Microsoft Windows. Install Wine from the Ubuntu Software Center.
