View Full Version : How to run DOS/Windows executable

31st October 2007, 04:32 AM

I have this video training program (CBT) which has a flash file called setup.exe. Its actually a flash plugin which when clicked in windows pops up the menu of all videos so you can browse it from there. This file is not opening up in my Fedora core 7.

The details of the file

MIME type: application/x-ms-dos-executable

Is there any utility which can run this application. :(

You can try wine, but it's not a 100%, in any case it can't hurt to try

su -
yum install wine -y

then in a terminal

wine <path to exe>

or right click and open with wine.
