    Many other Linux often do allow you to run many Windows files using the free Wine. But make sure you download the right version of Wine intended for Android by running a search in Google as wine for android download If it should offer a collection of Wine to download, I was told to select the one at the top of the list and I have used that.

    Beware though some Windows files may seem to run ok sometimes the graphics may not display quire correct. I presume if a Windows program or Games gets stuck you had best activate the Home button.

    It might be wise to only use Wine to run single Windows EXE files. Otherwise it seems to have problems making use of any support files needed. Also I suspect it is a waste of time attempting to use software designed to actually Install Windows software on any Linux like Android.
