May I ask why you would want to do that? If you want to run windows programs within a linux environment, then you will require Wine, or similar alternatives such as CrossOver or Cedega (for games). I hope that helps.

You could of course, just rename it (mv filename.exe filename.sh), but I don't think that's what you meant... ".exe" is the extension normally associated with a Windows executable, and can only run in Linux as mentioned above.

Please tell us more about what you are trying to do.

You have Oracle for Linux installed? If so, why would there be an .exe file?
