I'm using Mint 5. I've got Wine 1.0 installed. Can someone tell me how to install programs in Wine?

Should be able to click the .exe and it will run w/ Wine.
However, I havn't used Wine in over a year so I'm not sure.
If not, try running winefile from terminal and navigating to the file you wish to run.

Just double click the setup.exe right from the mint desktop. Let mint and wine do the rest.
Using Mint since 2008
*Mint 18.2 KDE
*ASUS 970 PRO GAMING/AURA AM3+ AMD 970 + SB 950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1
*AMD FX-8370 with AMD Wraith cooler Vishera 8-Core 4.0 GHz (4.3 GHz Turbo)
*G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB DDR3 SDRAM
