Linux How To Run This Program

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

 

I am going to purchase a VPS in the next week. I have a program that I need to run onto it (currently its a .exe)

 

Will I be able to run it? If so how do I do it?

 

I'd like to point out that I have to compile the program, if that helps.

I have virtually no experience with Linux systems, however even with the source code, I think the entire program would need re-coding. WIndows based applications mostly reference Windows functions, such as WMIs, etc.

 

The most feasable way would be to use WINE or something.

But with a VPS you only get SSH to your server nothing like remote desktop, so you will have to do it via command line if that's possible.

You can install FreeNX and whatever desktop environment you like on the remote VPS. Install the NX client on your desktop, this will allow you to login to your remote server with a GUI.

It all depends on how its written, you can have a code base thats cross-platform.

Guess it shows my ignorance to programming, as I'm so inexperienced.
