You can run a limited amount of Windows applications by emulation them using applications like Wine or CrossOver. Wine is free and is available through the standard repositories. If I recall correctly, CrossOver is not free and can be bought from the CrossOver website.

Take note that not all applications might work 100% correctly as they do on Windows. The most ideal situation is for you to look for Linux alternatives of the Windows applications you want to run.

Can you help with this problem?
