So I have a file called "install.cmd" which in windows need to be run with administrator, when I run it with wine it says in the terminal "Run this program as administrator". Can someone help me install this program?

If you are a gamer, most of the popular online games will run on Linux using Proton and steam, games you may have on disc or downloaded may work using Play on Linux [a front end for wine, and it is in the mint software manager]
If you have a Windows machine, you can install Linux in several ways
1] a clean installation using the complete disc [this will wipe all your Windows files and folders]
2] install alongside windows [this will enable you to choose which system to use at the boot stage]
3] install Linux in a Windows system using a virtual box [by doing this you can jump between the Linux VM and the windows host OS, without re-booting
4] install windows in a Linux system Virtual box [same result as 3 above]
5] If you have a Windows machine running Windows 8.2 or higher, install WSL[Windows subsystem for Linux] and run Linux inside your Windows system [similar to 3 above]
6] install either as a persistent installation to an external pen-drive or SD card [similar result to 2 above.
