  1. The two main things that stop you running Windows software on Android are:
    1. Android phones/tablets don’t normally use the x86 processor architecture that Windows PCs use.
    2. Android doesn’t have Windows’ APIs.

    You can run Windows software on a Linux system using Wine, which is an implementation of various Windows APIs, but it still requires the same type of processor that the software was compiled for. Unless you have the source code for the software, you cannot recompile it to work on an ARM processor (or whatever the Android device is using).

    This means you need to use processor emulation; in other words, a virtual machine. If you’re using a virtual machine, you then need to install an operating system on it. You could either install Windows, or Linux with Wine. Windows is more likely to work, but uses more resources.

    But running a virtual machine on a phone or tablet is going to be slow as molasses, and you probably won’t have enough RAM, either.

    The alternative would be to run the software on another computer elsewhere, and access it remotely using Windows’ Remote Desktop or a VNC program. If you do this, the only slow-down will be in the user interface of the Windows software.
