A commercial product from Cross Over Office may also be a solution to running this program.

You have been registered on this forum for 5 years and apparently you have not taught yourself much about linux in that time. Members of this community are ready to offer help to anyone, but a couple of guidelines for getting useful help might be in order.

1. Make an effort to solve the problem yourself first. You can find many answers by doing a simple search on the internet and following/trying the solutions suggested there.
2. Educate yourself, search for answers, learn the basics of what you are doing, then ask reasonable questions that others can understand. Reasonable questions include enough information about your system, what has already been tried, and exactly what the goal is so that readers who offer help can tell if their answers are even in the correct ballpark to answer your real question.

FYI
One of the things that will quickly turn me personally against helping anybody is lack of effort. That you have been a registered member of this community for 5 years is good. However, that you asked an identical question 4 years ago and did not learn from that, that you have not even learned enough about running a system to know the location of the *.repo files on your system, that you are running the commands that you quoted as root (system administrator/super user) but do not understand the basics of how to locate and install software, that you apparently have made no effort to locate a program written for linux that will do what you want but instead are trying to install a windows program on linux, all combine to tell me you are someone who wants to be told in microscopic detail how and to have your hand held as you do your job.
As has already been stated, team viewer is readily available for linux, yet you apparently did not take any effort to locate that and instead asked a very vague generic question here about running a *.exe file on linux when you could have answered your own question in 2 minutes or less.

I can suggest that learning a little bit about the package manager for your system (yum, dnf, apt-get, etc) then using that to locate software you need and install dependencies at the same time as the main package will make your overall job easier.

You are logged in and operating as root, yet you use sudo????
How little you understand linux and its' various commands!!
Please learn what you are doing!!

Users should NEVER do day-to-day operations when logged in as root. As root a simple typo such as "rm -rf / home/user/directoryname" can erase the entire system from your drive.

you do not RUN "yum-plugin-priorities"
you configure the repos AS PER THE INSTRUCTIONS ON THE PAGE I POSTED

As you've been told/asked before:
  • You asked this same question FOUR YEARS AGO...the same answer(s) still apply.
  • You *MAY* be able to run your program with Wine, but you STILL HAVEN'T BOTHERED to tell us what this program actually is, despite being asked.
  • You've been told TWICE how to enable the EPEL repository..neither have mentioned the "yum-plugin-priorities" command.
  • You've been asked if there is a Linux equivalent to your program...and you've not answered.
If you're not going to show effort of your own, answer questions when asked, or even follow the suggestions when asked, there isn't much point in posting.

John,
I did run 'yum install yum-plugin-priorities' but what should be the next step to enable the execution of any .exe file (that is generated by Visual studio)?

Sorry, but are you intentionally ignoring ALL the other posts in this thread, and not re-reading the OTHER thread you opened for the same question four years ago????

AGAIN: Install/run Wine. Your program MAY work and it may not. Wine is NOT windows...you STILL don't answer any questions about your application, seem to have ignored the advice about enabling the EPEL repository, and are asking AGAIN about this plugin-priorities command that NO ONE TOLD YOU TO RUN.

Can't be much more clear/plain/simple: install Wine and it may work. Answer questions about your application, and we may be able to help...but you're not.

First of all, why Wine 1.9.9? It's a development release and unless there's some functionality/bugfix in it that you particularly want, you would be best sticking to the latest stable release 1.8.3.

Secondly, why don't you install the EPEL repo version? It would save you a lot of bother.

You mean, aside from the VERY OBVIOUS ONE you posted???

Is there something in that very clear error that you didn't understand? Since the configure failed, why on earth would you think that running 'make' and 'make install' would somehow work?

AGAIN, as you've been told numerous times now, and spoon-fed instructions on how: LOAD THE EPEL REPOSITORY and TYPE IN 'yum install wine'. That's it. And AGAIN, as you've been asked numerous times now...WHY are you doing this, what is the application, and is there NOT A LINUX EQUIVALENT???? These are simple questions.

You could have installed the EPEL repository and had WINE running in five minutes. And as you've been told numerous times now, this MAY NOT EVEN WORK for your application, do you understand that????
