Is it possible import executable files from PC to Unix ?

I have (unfortunately) very little knowledge of Unix environments.
As i only know VB6, the only thing i could do, in order to install an executable file on a SUN, is writing the code on the PC, generate the .EXE and then import it to the SUN.
Do you think this is possible ?
Thanks in advance

    I'm fairly certain that VB6 EXE's will not run on Unix/Linux. You would need a platform independent language such as Java.

    You could, of course, run a Windows emulator on UNIX, but that'd be overkill - unless there's no other way for you to program for UNIX...

    Yes It is possible by mounting the data to Unix just by giving a command mount -vfat hda3 ./mnt/windows
    after this you will get your data in Unix and you can access from it any further correspondence regarding this can be asked to my E-mail address as kumawat_chandika@yahoo.com

    Of course you can move files between systems, but that won't make them RUN.
