The file '/home/dude/Desktop/Installer-BOTC.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied form an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit.

Its a windows file .exe which means theres a likely chance it will not work.

you need to make sure you install "wine" from the software centre and then ...

right click the Installer-BOTC.exe >click properties> permissions> allow executing file as a program

Again there is a likely chance that it will not work

Wine is your best bet for exe files. Keep in mind not all windows executables work properly using wine.

You can read up on wine here.
