    Do you mean you wish to compile a program on Linux (as an exe) and have it run on Windows?

    If so, then check out mingw, it might be what you need.

    It may already be packaged for your distro, e.g., on my Fedora box:
    Code:
    yum install mingw64-gcc
    then i could create a small C prog named test.c, and compile it like this:
    Code:
    x86_64-w64-mingw32-gcc -o test.exe test.c
    then test.exe is copied to my Win 7 64-bit box and run successfully.

    Hey,
    If you want to compile and even install windows programs or utilities on linux distributions so that u can use both linux and windows programms on ur linux box then you can install vmware workstation or oracle virtual box. With this you can run entire windows operating system on ur linux machine. But this will eat ur ram and slowdown ur box.
    The best way in my view is to install utility named "wine". It will enable u to install almost anything which runs on windows.
    yum install wine
    or apt-get install wine
    or rug in wine
    depending upon ur linux distribution.

    Thanks,
    jass
