You have to install linux (in VM perhaps).

Also be warned, things are more complicated, there is nothing like ".exe for Linux". Best you can do is ".exe" for specific linux distribution, like Ubuntu 2021.4 (that is also why U++ ide recompiles on installation).

I haven't tried it myself, but AppImage looks like solution of this problem: https://appimage.org/

Try to check what Docker can do for you.
Docker is based on Linux containers (lightweight version of VM).
Advantage - you do not need to install Linux. Docker will automatically download a preinstalled image for you.
Disadvantage - you will need to learn how to use Docker.
There are images with preinstalled Clang or GCC.
You'll just need to create an image with U++, which is using umk as a build tool.

What's wrong with Docker? It is the same VM, but instead of installing packages manually you do this via a script (a Dockerfile).
Nobody uses VMs directly these days. A worst case scenario is a container. But Docker is even easier than that, although it is better suited for server apps.
