Accessing .MPKG on MacBook Pro

MacBook Pro
A link received routed me to a .mpkg file to use to load access for my job to my personal MacBook pro.  I use a work/company issued PC normally/daily.  Safari for Windows has been added to the PC.  I interpreted the file to be simplistic and non intrusive to allow me to work from either the work issued PC or my personal MacBook Pro. An error is returned related to no application to use to execute on a Macintosh.
 Am I putting my personal MacBook pro at risk with access to the .mpkg file if I were to work around the message (e.g. find the correct app, + )? What possible percentage of risk?

    First of all from where you got this file. Is it a reliable source. By default Apple has changed the security settings to only allow installation of apps from the mac app store. It is not recommended to change this settings. However, it is possible to change, but this is at your own risk. If this is from a reliable source, you can double click on it and the associated application can open it. Apple installer is a installer which is generally integrated with this OS, however version/ flavor may be a cause.  Or the file type is not associated with correct software application.
