Hello! To install Windows software on a Linux system you need to install a virtual machine. I recommend Virtual Box by Oracle / Sun Microsystems. I use this on my PC and have a Linux OS installed in it. It works nicely. At 1 time I had XP Pro x64, VISTA Business x86 and 2 Linux OS installed in V-Box. Just make sure you have the memory and the free disk space. If you do not then there will be performance issues.
What happens is that the V-BOX creates a folder/directory that your host OS (In your case Linux) is an independent computer like on a network.
Try WINE, it is used in many linux distros. It is installable just like a software and from there you can install and run windows programs. I haven't tried centos, but it made me run windows softwares on ubuntu.
By the way WINE is not a vmware, its a program that lets you run windows programs and it is completely FREE.
Use WINE . It's a windows emulator which can run windows application on linux.
sudo apt-get install wine
Once that's installed, use chmod to change permissions on the exe you want to run, or right click on it and hit properties. Once the properties are sit, simply right click and hit run with wine.
It may be a little bit harder than that, I haven't used my debian install in awhile.
