    download and run exe files for apps from app store

    We have an Acer Chromebook. Go to the Chrome Web store and choose "Need for Speed" Add to Chrome. App appears, but when launched, the site needs to install Need for Speed.

    Click on Download the Game

    setup_1229.exe is downloaded.

    Try to run the file and error indicates "This file type is not supported. Please visit the Chrome Web Store to find an app that can open this type of file"

    What next?

    Other apps show "No plug in available to display this content." What is the plug in needed and why doesn't chrome link to it?

    .exe is a Windows executable file. It will work only with Windows. Not Mac, Linux, Unix, Chrome etc.
    **Please search before asking questions***
    Why wait for CR48..? Try Chrome OS Now.
