.exe are Windows executables and cannot be run under Linux just like that.

In general, both WINE and/or VMWare will execute Windows applications, you might want to have a look into that for general knowledge and all, but it does not apply to your particular situation at all.

As for the driver:
1. Windows drivers are obviously worthless in a *nix environment.
2. Ubuntu should have its own.
3. Mice are most always plug & play.

What happens if you connect the device?
