you can't run exe files under unix, they are only for windows. you could run it via wine, but as this appears to be about oracle, there's no way you'd have anything to do with wine and a decent database.

I assume your exe is Linux Executable file
There are two choices
1. Append PATH with the directory
PATH=$PATH:/opt/oracle/product/10.20/db_1/bin
Then run imp
2. Type /opt/oracle/product/10.20/db_1/bin/imp

I think he meant linux executable since the installation PATH is where I see my company installed Oracle 10g in.
