Unable to run Jenkins C++ artifact

Hi all,
I am new to Jenkins, I have a simple "hello world" C++ project

I use Eclipse IDE for C/C++ Developers (on Windows8) which is generating the makefile. I can run the .exe file produced by Eclipse but I cannot run the .exe file produced by Jenkins (my Jenkins instance is on a Linux server, hosted by cloudbees). I have the following Windows 8 error message.
"This app can't run on your PC"

If I run the .exe file as administrator I have got another error message:

Windows cannot find 'C:\User\Romain\Downloads\Deepov.exe'. Make sure you've typed the name correctly, then try again.

The Jenkins build is simply executing the following shell commands:

#!/bin/bash echo "*********building************" echo $WORKSPACE cd $WORKSPACE/Debug echo $PWD make clean make

    @sandeepkumar ,
    Do I understand correctly that your Jenkins build is running on Linux, and then you try to run on Windows the executable produced on Linux?

    Also, "C:\User\Romain\Downloads\Deepov.exe" looks like something you downloaded? It is not clear why Windows is looking for it when you run an unrelated program, please double check your command line.
