You can't run Linux programs in Windows (unless you use some kind of emulator) nor Windows programs in Linux (again except if you are using Wine or similar software).

  • yes , but i don't run program in window , just i need copy of these program to put in another Linux machine , clear ?? – Safia Hammad Jul 29 '15 at 8:35
  • No. What do you mean with "when i open executable file in windows the file is not defined ( not exe file )"? – Javier Rivera Jul 29 '15 at 11:54
  • But if you are copying a file using Linux as a bridge it will lost it's unix permissions. Maybe the new file just lacks execution permission?. – Javier Rivera Jul 29 '15 at 11:55
