Is it possible to run EXE files on replit? and if it is possible how?

I want to run an exe file on replit but I don't know how and where to start. Can you tell me what programming language to use, what do I need to code, etc. If it isn't possible at the moment I hope it becomes an option someday.

you can use mono:

mono main.exe

but that only supports a small subset of exes that actually were targeted for mono.

After all, exe is something Microsoft uses, and replit uses linux.

It is technically possible because C# compiles to .exe files. Check out this repl (make sure to look at the .replit file, as that configures the run button)

@BD103
I know this thread is old, but using a C# program compiled to exe works in replit. Thanks!

No, replit doesn't support that.
