No unless you run it on the emulator like wine or win4lin.
Wine is open-source windows environment on Linux but it started about a decade ago and still not reliable yet. It seems like you have to wait next 20 years to be able to run it reliably.
Go for win4lin. But it's not free. You have to pay. And u also need Windows 9x OS CD.

Wine isn't an emulator - thats why it doesn't run applications flawlessly (unfortunately!) But not being an emulater does make the programs it runs quicker!

From their website: Wine's name says: "Wine Is Not an Emulator": Wine does not emulate the Intel x86 processor. It will thus not be as slow as Wabi which, since it is not running on a x86 Intel processor, also has to emulate the processor. Windows applications that do not make system calls will run just as fast as on Windows (no more no less).

Yeah I know. Technically it's not an emulator. It's windows environment. But you have to say it "like emulator" to understand the ppl. (especially laymen)
