As EricTRA said, installing software is distro dependent. So if you tell us what distro and version of said distro you are using we can provide more specific help.
Understand that Windows .exe installers that were designed to be installed on Windows will not work in Linux. There is a Linux program called wine
that can run many Windows programs on a Linux system; but you are better off using a Linux alternative for your program since there are a great many Linux alternatives for almost any Windows program.
Write back if you need mode help.
