What do you mean by Windows "runs on its own" while the others "use" Unix? The operating systems you're thinking of are Unix-likes, but they don't "use" it. They implement certain APIs (e.g. POSIX) and provide certain common functionality.

They are separate operating systems with different designs, licensing and implementation.

When posting what errors you get, please give the full message. It makes helping you much easier.
