Unless you use a VM or software like Wine,
.exe files are for Windows only.
The Drivers CD is for Windows. If you want to get your network receiver to work, you will have to install the Drivers for Linux Specifically.
The first way is to install the drivers through Additional Drivers.
- Plug In your Network Receiver.
- Search for "jocky" in the dash and choose "Additional Drivers".

Now before we attempt to build the source, let's make sure we have the required tools to make it work. The following command should get

tar xvzf ~/ndiswrapper1.5.tar.gz

install in the proper place like so
sed -e "s/misc/kernel\/drivers\/net\/ndiswrapper/g" debian/rules > debian/temp
mv debian/temp debian/rules
Enter the source directory and issue the make deb command.
In your /usr/src directory, if all went well, you should find two brand new .deb package files starting with "ndiswrapper". Let's
