Linux doesn't have autorun type applications especially if they are games designed to run on Windows. You'll need to most likely install xwine or wine to install these games.

Sure, if that's the latest version you could probably get it to work. But there is always a possibility that a program or game developed for Windows might not work properly.

Regards.
