hmmm well, it because your trying to run a windows program in linux.. you need Wine or something like that to do it...

so yeah.. you CANNOT run windows programs natively in Linux...

open synaptic, and download Wine

then try right-clicking the installer, and select "open with wine program loader"

if its not written for the system, then it wont run, without a lil help, some luck, and a lil time..
