Installing new third party software from a CD

I am having some trouble because I am (obviously) not very familiar with Linux. How do I run a Windows .exe file off of a CD? Do I have to install some other software to allow this to work?

and some patience

what .exe is it? (i mean, what's the program you're trying to run?)
