one of the only thing you could use to attempt to run a *.exe is Wine

Depends on the exe but you can use wine. There is other software to do the job as well but they cost $$$. You can start here and see if your exe is supported.

Linux doesn't realy use .exe files. The only way to run them would be to get a windows emulater or run wine. both would be complex to get to work.
