Hi,
I do not have experience with Linux, and I'm developing Windows Service application. To running basic .exe file on Linux I have read about Wine, etc, but nothing found about running windows service app on linux...
Is it possible?

Thanks in advance for help...

Not directly.  You would have to have an emulator like Wine or a 'virtual' system that will run Windows.  Linux by itself will not do it.
