You try to run windows executables on Android? Are those programs for Windows ARM as well?

Yes I did attempt to run windows x86 exe files on Android. After doing research I know now why it couldn't work on WINE since it doesn't do emulation like Windows 10 for ARM does. My knowlage of computer technology is rather(very) limited, and I think there should be an error message built into wine when trying to run x86 executables other than 2 squares. I think many people having heard of, or have had experience with the new ARM windows devices that can run 'normal' apps could get the wrong idea going into wine like I did.

Hi,
In simple words, if your device's architecture is arm (and you have Wine arm.apk), then you can only run applications supported by Windows RT (it is like Microsoft Store apps only and there is only a very few apps).
If your device's architecture is x86 (and you have Wine x86.apk), then you can run 32-bit Windows applications.
You can install ExaGear on arm based device to emulate a x86 processor. This will enable you to run 32-bit Windows applications on your arm processor which is not possible with any version of Wine (Android).
