wine error - can't execute because its an .exe file

I've been trying to use the program WINE in order to download these programs on Ubuntu. On the other hand, I've gotten a message saying I cannot.

"Downloads/iTunes64Setup.exe' is not marked as executable. If this was downloaded or copied from an untrusted source, it may be dangerous to run. For more details, read about the executable bit."

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

iTunes has some problems installing through wine, I can tell you how to get it to run, but it may not function properly, and if it does not function properly, it is a pain to remove

you would do the following, right click on the exe, go to properties, then permissions, click on allow exicution of this file, also make sure that the read and write permissions are set. this will allow wine to open the file, and run it.
