Can you run a .exe file on these servers?

There may be a workaround but I doubt it. .exe is normally Windows based programs and here we run on Linux.

As wildjoker says, if it is a Windows .exe file then you cannot run it here. However, if it was written for linux and you compiled it on your server, then you can. All you have to do is chmod u+x your file.

If you don't know what compiling is, then the answer is DEFINITELY NOT

It's a bit like trying to speak French in Japan otherwise.

Is this by chance a game created using Game Maker (http://www.gamemaker.nl/)? If it is then it is compiled for Windows so it won't work on your web site.
