Hi and Welcome !
Linux doesn't support .exe files. You can run .exe files using Wine but it doesn't work with all exe files.
I would suggest you install applications using Package Manager/Add Remove Programs only. Check the list of Windows Alternative pacakges in Linux.
Have you tried Pidgin or Kopete Messenger? It has a lot of messenger clients including MSN.
