 Greetings!!

 

@Dlt Running .exe files directly from DBFS (Databricks File System) is not supported. This is because Databricks clusters use Ubuntu machines, which do not support the execution of .exe files. Exe files are generally used in Windows OS. 

 

Hope this helps !

Thanks a lot for reply.  I have a buildable code which i can build and create file which can run on linux platform.

If that is the case then can you suggest how can i run it in databricks ? Can we keep it in dbfs and call it in notebook ?

Hello, 

I don't have much information on what kind of executables you would like to run in databricks however, I can think of two solutions : 

Solution 1: Deploy your code in azure container registry as an image and use the endpoint in data bricks. 

Solution 2: Convert the same business logic in data bricks notebook and run directly from data bricks.
