Installing 7z files onto the Quest

How the bollox do I do this?

I've extracted the 7z file on my laptop which creates a folder containing an exe file (an application) amongst others. I have SideQuest on my laptop but have no idea where to go from here. There's an option to install an apk file on SideQuest but there's no bloody apk file in the extracted 7z folder!

I'm well and truly stuck! ...... Is there a guide somewhere that shows what to do?

    What is it you are trying to install? It sounds like a Windows app, not for Quest.

     A VR porn game.... it gives you the option to download either a VR client or a PC client so I obviously downloaded the VR one.... I would have thought this would be compatible with the Quest?

    The Quest can only run things explicitly made for the Quest.
    Having .exe on the end is a Windows specific thing, the Quest is Android based (its basically a mobile phone without the phone bit).

    Now if it was a SteamVR / OpenVR based game, you could connect the Quest to a PC using a USB cable and play it that way. The Quest can act as a PC headset when connected with a cable (assuming the PC is powerful enough).
