FOr a genuine Windows app the two main routes here are Wine and a VM.
Wine ("Wine Is Not an Emulator":-) runs Windows applications in a Windows API
emulation layer. That is probably the lowest impact way to run your program,
and it will present ttyS0 as COM1 and so forth.
Otherwise run Windows in a VM (cumbersome, supposedly needs a licence, etc).
However, it sounds like the app is already running for you. Is it something
portable (eg a Java app) rather than a Windows .exe file?
If it is portable you probably can tell it "/dev/ttyS0" or the like. Unless it
is badly written

We really don't care what APIs Microsoft publishes - the only thing
that matters to us is what APIs are used by the applications we want
to support. In fact, Wine only implements about half of the Windows
APIs. Now some (like my wife) might argue that's because we're just lazy,
but the truth is that over half of the Windows APIs have never been used!
