Linux isn't Windows. What program(s) are you trying to run?

SOME .exe files can be run on Linux using the app called Wine, BUT NOT ALL.

As riider says: What program(s) are you trying to run?

.exe files tend to be Windows files. That .exe means they are different than .com files but you don't need to go that far back in time.

Yes, in many cases there are more than a few ways to run programs that were made for windows.

Wine as suggested is a good start. The winehq site has a listing of programs that have been tested.

A better commercial product or two exist that may also work. Crossover Office makes one that in turn helps linux users through the the wine program.

Dosbox is one way that can run some exe files.

A virtual machine could run windows within linux.

Some linux versions run at the same time as windows like co-linux.

Some very complex windows installs can be copied to linux along with registry into wine that otherwise are impossible to install in linux.


Telling us the name of the .exe file would have helped.

Wow!
I'm sorry, I'm a beginner with Linux. I know about WINE, I have it already, I just don't know how to install it. So I need details. I appreciate the help very much.

Use wine. Just go to the software center in in your Ubuntu and search for wine. Install it and run exe file.
