Sometimes you can run exe files with wine. It depends on the particular
application you want to run. You can check at <http://appdb.winehq.org/>
if your application is supported.
Other than that you can use a virtual machine like VirtualBox and install
Windows on the VM. But then you need a Windows licence which allows to be
installed in a VM. Usually OEM versions don't allow that. Furthermore you
need a lot of memory to run a virtual machine.
