i cant install any software ie: dotnetfx35.exe (microsoft .net 3.5) please help me
Hi i have been using centos6.2 for nearly a week now well trying to use it i should say, and for me to be able to use my software i have to have microsoft .net 3.5 installed ive tried but cant seem to get it installed, My software I need to use is also .exe Im not sure if i have to run special commands for installing these or not can someone please guide me. I haven't been able to do anything with this new OS yet and am really missing using windows however I have to be using this OS for me to be able to do what I need to do, I am so confused and very frustrated, please please please somebody help me. 'thank youuuuu'
Linux doesn't run "exe" files natively. That's a windows program and Linus is NOT windows. If you have to use it, you're probably better off using windows, although you can try running the software via wine, no promises at all that it will work.
mono is the Linux project to implement .net standards on Linux, so you might also want to look into that. Ultimately though, it looks like you're not clear on what Linux actually IS.
I have tried to install wine in fact im still trying to install that as we speak, ive tried all sorts of commands ie ./wine install.... install wine etc but to no avail. Im not sure what im doing wrong, Im logged in as root while making these commands but yeah its just not working, what am i doing wrong, i went to the wine website and downloaded wine but it doesnt show up on my downloads not sure what else i should be doing. like i said im new to this and not sure how it all works yet, the only reason why im using this OS is because I was told i cannot use cpanel without it. But before i even get to start on cpanel etc i have to install software and i dont even know how to do that, then i have to unzip it and im still trying to learn those commands install those programs etc. I am the definition of a NEWBIE. I know Ive got a lot to learn but if anyone out there is willing to teach me I would be so thankful. Otherwise Ill just have to keep hunting through all these forums to find my answer to my queries, so time consumeing when all i want to do is install 2 software packages and unzip them and then get myself up and running if you know what I mean. Once again thanking you in advance for your time.
Im not sure what im doing wrong, Im logged in as root while making these commands but yeah its just not working
Dont loggin as root, its a bad idea, and unneeded in 99%+ of cases.
If you want to get help, its always best to tell us what OS and version you are using (no, 'linux', isnt an OS). Eg, 'I'm using debian squeeze 6.0.5'.

No, you dont need linux bnased OSes to use cpanel.
A version of cPanel for Microsoft Windows exists, titled Enkompass
I'll keep hunting through all these forums and see if they can help me, I feel so dumb right now. I have so much to learn I just wish there was a easier way to learn everything. Centos is so confusing. thanking you in advance for your comments and your time.
thanks pan64 for your comment Ill try that now,
and thankyou cascade9 for your comment i wish i had known that a week ago, stupid me, i ended up changing my OS from vista to CentOs6.2 in order for me to run cpanel obviously I was given wrong information, i didnt to a dual boot nieither so Im stuck with Centos for now, not happy not happy at all. I dont know how to change it back to Vista from Centos, I dont even know how to extract a file in this Centos6.2 now i feel really stupid but yeah thanks again for all your help.
