how to execute a file


Linux OS: Fedora Core
Question: I have downloaded a file from internet but cannot execute it though the executable permissions(755) are set on the file. How do I execue this file?

Snapshot of the screen/commands below.
[xxx@localhost xxx]$ bbchindi.exe
bash: bbchindi.exe: command not found

[xxx@localhost xxx]$ ls -lrt
total 96
drwxr-xr-x 2 rocky rocky 4096 May 17 02:11 Desktop
-rwxr-xr-x 1 rocky rocky 89776 Jun 10 21:31 bbchindi.exe

Thanks.

*.exe files are for windows only. This means that you can't execute this file running linux.
There is always an option but then you have to install wine. Wine is an emulator program which creates a fake windows environment so u can run all kinds of windows programs.

Try google to find out how to install wine.

Good luck
