Hi Heshani,
I do not know where the vina executable is, since I have not downloaded or installed it myself, and I don't have a Windows machine on which to try that.  We are not the Autodock Vina developers.  Maybe you can ask on the Autodock Vina help list where the executable file is when you install the Windows version:
