When I try to open an .exe file in centOS (Release 6.5) by double clicking, it is not opening. I am creating an app which requires databases. I cannot check whether the data has gone in database or not because of this.I think may be some silly settings are blocking it. Any help appreciated.

  • you can't run .exe file on centos without wine winehq.org – Networker Jul 2 '14 at 11:05
  • What .exe file? Where did you get it? If this is really a Windows executable, such files don't run natively on non-Windows operating systems. Please edit and clarify exactly what you are trying to do. – terdon Jul 2 '14 at 11:14

You might try the Linux version of the software instead of the Windows version. The project website has the source, and I found a tutorial that should work for CentOS 6.5. Otherwise, to run a Windows executable on a non-Windows O/S, you might have success using WINE.

Or, there are other GUI database browsers like Valentia. You want the RPM package for use with CentOS.

  • I tried the source and even the tutorial you provided earlier. But i cannot find any .sh file inside the folder after extracting it. And in tutorials I end up at qmake step. – Anand.B Jul 2 '14 at 11:28
  • Valentina is not opening the .db file. It is set for .sqlite file i suppose. – Anand.B Jul 2 '14 at 12:15
