Originally posted by CanadianPenguin A .exe file (on Windows) is an executable program, not a regular file. You can't run it on Linux unless you use Wine or VMWare to emulate Windows.
Actually, I was kind of thinking of a viewer that decompiled the program. I already knew that .exe files(executables) are for windows systems. That's why I asked for a viewer, not some emulator for Windows to run them. I may still be a newbie for Linux, but I definately know more than you can shake a stick at for Windows(From experience of breaking & fixing....)

Now wouldn't that be a find! I don't think this exists. The ability to 'decompile' and reverse
engineer is as much an art as it is science. Except for the raw, compile hex machine code,
which you already saw in vi, it doesn't exist. These links should give an idea of just how
complicated it would be. I guess you could build a front end that decompiled, then loaded in
vi, or another powerful editor.
