If your Linux PC has limited RAM and you don't want to sacrifice large chunk of RAM to run VM just to be able to run one or two windows app. Wine is your answer. You save buying one window license to run window app.

[1] Shows you how.

PlayOnlinux is also mentioned as a wonderful tool to make it possible to handle different versions of wine and wine configs because if you use it for more then one app it's sometimes necessary to install different wine versions.

You can use Wine for that purpose. but it only works on .net 2.0 / 3.0, Most probably, .net 4 is beyond the capacity right now. Ur best bet is for .net support on Linux is MONO. [2]
