That won't work.
This, also you can't open a .exe file with an archive program - the error message reads that you were trying to do something involving a.zip archive file - .exe is an executable file not an archive.
A quick search of the program (CNET tech tracker) lead me to the conclusion that there isn't a linux native version of it, I'm not really clear on what this particular piece of software does, but you'll need something like Wine to get it to work on linux. Depending on what it actually does it may not be all that useful on linux anyway though.
In general, when getting software for linux, especially if you're new, go through your distro's repositories - you should have an add/remove software option somewhere in your menus that allows you to download packages and install them simply and easily and most even handle dependencies for you. If the repositories don't work, you can try to find a package online (the type of package depending on the actual distro and package managment software) and if all else fails you can try to compile from source code if it's an open-source or free-software application.
Hope this helps!
It can be a tad confusing at first if you're coming over from Windows or Mac, but once you get use to it many people find getting and managing software on linux much better than doing it on Windows or Mac, so stick with it and you'll adjust.
