RPI uses a kind of linux distribution.
So you can not use windows executables / windows versions of your emulator.

for a quick start, use a web search engine and look, which emulators exists and how it's implemented in retropie:

retropie lynx

Lynx is a handheld console by Atari.

Raspberry pi is a small board computer.

Exe is a windows executable (binary). You must use Windows on your raspberry pi to run an exe. There are other, better, operating systems available for the raspberry pi. I suggest spending some time Wikipedia computer operating systems first. Dos, windows, Unix, linux., Mac.

TwisterOS sounds like a confusing joke. It uses apt. So it's Debian Linux based. It's not windows. It's not Mac. It has a desktop environment and retropie? :Facepalm:

I created a guide on my arcade mvs wiki. However, there are changes with the raspberry pi 4. You might want to read my guide and then ask oomek and joyrider3774 about changes with attract and pi 4.
