I have just downloaded uTorrent on my Galaxy S running Android 2.3. The .exe file has been downloaded and is in the download folder, but when I open the download folder on my SD card and click it, it gives only one option: "Delete file".

I'm not able to run this on my phone? What do I have to do to run it?

.exe Files are Windows binaries (i.e. executable files/applications/programms) that can not be run natively on a Android system.

I am sure the Play Store (or the alternatives of the Play Store) will have an equivalent app to the .exe file you are trying to run.

You can't run .exe files in Android. It is a Windows executable file . Android apps will have .apk format.

Check out this link. They discuss about Android Torrent apps (downloaders).

μTorrent exists in Play Store and works well. Download it from there. However, I would like to learn how to run .exe files on Android without using a complicated method.

    You can't. .exe files are used onl on Windows, and they cannot be run on Android, because it's a completely different operating system, which has more in common with Linux than Windows. – onik Sep 2 '13 at 6:44
  • Welcome to the site. This answer would be a lot more constructive if you included a link, not just an assertion that the app exists. Would you consider editing your answer to include a link? – Dan Hulme Sep 2 '13 at 8:09

.exe is windows executable file. Like you can't run android app on windows without android emulator. In the same way you are going to need windows emulator to run .exe on android. And as far as I know no such emulator is available yet.

.exe file will run on windows or DOS, so you probably can't open that .exe file to your android phone. But there is a way. As some .exe files are also written for DOS and android is really reliable with DOS, So you just have to install DOS box app in your phone, type the name of your .exe file, in that way you can run .exe file.

You also can use 3 party apps to make that out like - Inno Setup Extractor
