Windows software does not run on Linux including Ubuntu Linux. There is the windows emulator wine which can run some software and there is the option to run windows in a virtual machine, but that is not trivial to configure for normal users, especially if you want to access USB devices.

Just to know what kind of device you bought:
Please connect it, open the Terminal application, type "lsusb", hit Enter and copy the full output for us. Thanks!

Also what is the output of :

lsb_release -a; uname -a


Can you help with this problem?
