Joseph,

You are trying to run a windows executable program in a Linux operating system. You most probably will get this error because the file format is not recognized by Linux.

The first solution I would suggest is to go to the download site of the software you are trying to install or use and check if there is one that will work the Linux operating system i. e. a .rpm one.

However, if you do not get one, you can use another program to emulate a windows environment to run in them. There are many commercial software but the most popular one is the Oracle VM VirtualBox. It comes with well documented installation and usage guides.

Another common program is the Wine application which allows Linux users to run some windows applications in Linux. It is pretty straight forward in terms of installation and usage because it is a Linux application. Go to this site for clarity on usage:

Hope this helps.
