Wine is the obvious choice, but you would then need to run it un QEMU to emulate the x86 processor. Probably other options, but all a bit complicated.

If that doesn't work, I doubt there is much chance of getting it working.

What does the exe do? There may be a Linux equivilent you can use instead.

Since what you are apparently trying to install is presumably some sort of device driver, I would estimate your chances of success in installing the Windows software on a PI (or any Linux machine) as 'slim to none'. You need to find Linux drivers for it. The link that Roken has posted may help you, though your specific modem is not on the 'supported' list there.
