    You're attempting to run a Microsoft Windows executable (EXE) file in Linux. This genrally won't work at all. EXE files are designed for Windows and Windows only. They won't run natively in Linux.

    Thankfully, the game you're trying to install has a native Linux version. It's the second download link on this page:

    PlaneShift - A 3D Fantasy MMORPG

    Look specifically for the Linux 32-bit (X86) torrent.
