Please add more relevant details!

As far as I am aware it is not possible to do this natively under Linux but it is possible to run an executable compiled on a M$ system on a Linux system using VMWare or WINE which are Windows emulators running under Linux.

Not unless you get the MFC source code form Micro$oft, since the MSVC++ compiler comes with lots of *.lib files, whereas Linux needs *.so


Hmm, might you not also have to write a bunch of interrupt handlers?

I know that this post is coming in about a year too late but...
with slight modifications to your code, it is possible.
You'll need the library at this address though:
