what is it you want to install?
also a .exe file is a Microsoft windows program .If we knew what it is you want to install then we can point you to the linux version of it ( if it exists )
PC Linux OS is most probably based on Fedora. There is a good chance that wine is available in the repositories of the package manager for your distribution.
Welcome to LQ.
PCLinuxOS is based on Mandrake / Mandriva,
but uses "apt for rpm" + Synaptic for package management.
# apt-get install wine
will do ( or use Synaptic ).
Remark : Some, not all, windows app's will work with wine.
PCLinuxOS has it's own site
and has a "Wine" download available from synaptic.
You will probably find it easier to follow the route PClos -Wine-Windows to get the exe installed, provided it is actually supported in Wine.
May be the OP , AnilkumarML, will tag the thread as [SOLVED]
if wine got installed OK.
