That only works on when you are using the same instruction set on both the VM and the host. In the Pi case, you are running on ARM, and Windows .exe are x86. That won't work. (there are also many other reasons but that's a showstopper).tony1812 wrote:I am not sure if this is feasible on Pi. (mrmory etc.)
On my friend's Linux Ubuntu box . He installed a VM to run native Windows OS. thus most of .exe can run in Windows enviroment.

Code: Select all
sudo apt install dosbox
That depends on what one means by "Windows binaries", and whether by "run" one means "natively execute" or "coerced into doing what it is expected to do". Most people with a .exe file they want to "run" don't care how it's done, are only interested in having it work.

Some exes can be ran on the pi.
Apparently the Android port of the game can be ran on the pi.
And some person claims he was able to install wine on his raspberry pi. It should work, as arm is just reduced instruction, meaning there might be some performance penalty to get compatibility working.. but I haven't personally tried wine on the pi.
Android doesn't use .EXE files, (why should it?) and it doesn't (normally) use an x86 processor either, the android version of the game is ported to run on an ARM system (under android).
In other words, like we said, its only theoretically doable, if you can stand the pain....
When I was at school we had a guy who could write 6502 as op codes faster than I could type, he didn't need an assembler. I could do a few codes, but not that fast! ('twas an Apple ][ )rpdom wrote: ↑Wed Jan 15, 2020 6:17 pm
I couldn't do that with 6502 (and I wrote a lot of 6502 assembler on the BBC Micro). I could do it with some Z80 code though.
