      Official documentation for extant versions of Mandriva can be found at doc.mandriva.com.   Documentation for the latest release may take some time to appear there. You can install all the manuals from the main repository if you have Mandriva installed - files are prefixed mandriva-doc.

      Forum software upgrade   10/29/17

      So you may have noticed the forum software has upgraded !!!
      A few things that have changed. We no longer have community blogs (was never really used) We no longer have a portal page.
      We can discuss this, and decide whether it is needed (It costs money) See this thread: Here

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.

 

Something like this:
