    Please refer to this sticky:

    Linux is not MS Windows, so you won't be able to run EXE files designed for MS Windows on it without some sort of emulation. You might want to look at WINE for running Starcraft. It's old enough that it might work:

    Yes, WINE does that. It's the second link I posted.

    WineIsNotanEmulator, it is a compatability layer, that allows some windows applications or games run on *nix systems.

    StarCraft runs extremely well for me using Cedega.
