WINE and Cedega spring to mind. What sort of .exe file? Linux doesn't use them natively.

It depends. Do you have Wine?
What kind of application is it?

Is it a pure DOS based application or there are different kind of API's used?

Made something similar as that in Micro$oft Visual Basic?

ActiveX is both a purely Windows thing and a security hole. If you are looking to run it in IE, use Wine and go to www.frankscorner.org for help with setting it up.

activeX is quite tricky to setup I would say the best (well worse... ;-) ) idea would be to make it run within IE (with wine or crossover)... not even sure it works but it's probably the easier way to have it working...

Crossover Office does a pretty good job at runing most exes imo...
