Please provide useful details, and we may be able to help you. How about telling us WHAT executable/program you're talking about, on what Version/distro of Linux??

Short answer is: you can't. .EXE files are for WINDOWS, and Linux isn't Windows.

Longer answer: it depends on WHAT the executable is, if it runs under Wine or not, and if you can install/have installed Wine on your version/distro of Linux.

Assuming .exe file you want to run is windows software. Depending on the software it may or many not run on linux. You can run windows excutables (.exe files) with Wine. Wine is a windows compatibility layer http://winehq.org. There are some commercial versions that derived from Wine as will if you want to spend money. Not sure if they work better or not.
