Am looking for solution to run .exe. file inside my LINUX server which has no internet access.

I can't install WINE package to run the file. I am unable to find an offline package for WINE to be file transferred [PSCP] into my LINUX server.

Any help is appreciated. My LINUX OS is RHEL LINUX 7.


In case you have a legal copy of RHEL you can ask the RHEL support. You didnot tell what kind of .exe you plan to run (need windows or not; with or without need of I/O). Wine is one possiblity, the next are kvm-qemu or dosemu. You can look for rpm packages on rpmfind.net or other site for rpm search or sf.net or you can try to look at wine project home page. The closest OS to RHEL is its free version Fedora.

  • Thanks for the feedback. I have downloaded wine-3.0.2.tar.xz and transfered the file over the my RHEL server using PSCP. I have unpacked the file, into a folder called wine-3.0.2. Does anyone know how to install wine from here on using PuTTY? Have tried to use .\install.sh which is located in wine-3.0.2 -> tools but PuTTY responds with "no input file specified". – Gluon Sep 4 '18 at 10:52
  • Packages .tar.gz or .tar.xz usualy content the program sources and shoud be compiled. Look for .rpm binary package (check the arch - 32bit or 64bit) for RHEL or at least Fedora. Consult the manual of rpm command (I cannot help you - I use apt-get on debian) and the install procedure will check the dependences (look if you have all necessary libraries) itself. – schweik Sep 4 '18 at 11:16
