You could try WINE for *.exe files, but this doesn't work very well. - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wine
Java is installed with sudo aptitude install sun-java5-jre, provided multiverse is enabled. -https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Java

I am trying to use a laptop stick for network access, but cannot open the autorun.exe on my Unbuntu. How can I download this software to use the network stick?

Can you help with this problem?
