file type exe not found"google play apk"android download error

Hi,
I found a Google play download for android on softsonic but get error "file type exe not found" when selected from ad card? This is a nextbook PREMIUM 8SE multi touch capacitive screen, 800x600 pixels, 4.3 display 1080p, AML8726-M3 Cortex A9 1 GHz, DDR3 512 MB, Android OS 4.0 ice cream sandwich, OTA compatible, easy connect WIFI 802.11 b/g/n
That is all the specs I see. Any fixes? Thanks

Your post is confusing. Reads like your device is running an Android OS -- ICS. But, ".exe" files are MS Windows files, not Android. They're generally executables but can also be self-extracting archives Either way, they will do you no good on a machine running Android.

The system is Android OS. The error message regarding "exe" confusion was directly from the tablet. "File type exe not found"

That's because ... as already mentioned ... ".exe" files are Windows files, not Android files. You will not be able to use them on a machine running an Android OS.

If the device is interpreting an ".apk" file as an ".exe" file, you may have to go into some installation options and allow it to install ".apk" files. Had to do this on my Android phones before I could install stuff NOT downloaded through PlayStore.
