.EXE Files in mandriva 2011

In a nutshell, You cannot.

Sorry, but you have to realize that Linux (Mandriva) is not an alternative Winblows.


The .exe is a windows only format and that is why Linux is not affected when .exe malware is downloaded to a Linux system, since clicking on it will NOT activate it.


Welcome to the Linux world and to Mandriva Users Board or MUB as we know it.


Cheers. John.

EXE are windows only file format for Windows only, it wont run on linux, mac, blackberry, ios, or any other non-windows system.


Linux and Mandriva uses RPM and or other formats similar to .bin or .sh not .exe.


That said you can use a winodows emulator like Wine, and or install windows in a Virtualbox virtual machine.
