Linux don't have native support for exe files. If you want to install an exe (windows) application, use wine (windows emulator) or even better, get the linux equivalent for that program
Cheers!!

Unhappy "no installed viewer capable of displaying...."

I have just installed Linux Mandrake 9.1, and have the same problem whenever I try to install any rpm package. If I use the gnome interface I get "Nautilus has no installed viewer capable of displaying -programname-.rpm. Makes using Linux a bit difficult if you can use any apps!
Thanks,
Don
