Unable to install .exe, commands do nothing

Post by GalacticToast » Tue Dec 18, 2018 8:21 pm

Forewarning: I am not a computer geek. Any explanations about codes and such will fly over my head, nor do I want to learn code. The most preferred advice is instructional steps ("click this, type that", etc.).

Why am I even here then: I want to try running a few select games on Wine since I have no access to a PC. I'm willing to install these simple/unrelated programs to get started, since I'm using Wine with ARM, but...
The problem: Nothing works. Commands in command prompt result in either "path not found" or "not recognized". I'm trying to install the installer for Notepad++, but browsing thru my SD card (where I put that exe in) to run it doesn't show it; it's invisible. In my File Manager app, yes, it's there, but in Wine... no. I already Googled the hell out of this issue with no progress.
Also: Using my Android phone with that ARM thing. No access to PC. I use GameKeyboard+ to manage keyboard controls to use Wine. I wanna die already QvQ
