Playonlinux and Libraries:

Use the software manager to search for "playonlinux"

Doubleclick "playonlinux"

Click install

Wait for a minute

Click back to search results

Double-click "playonlinux" again

Now it should say "remove"
(I wish there was a better indication that it installed, but thats all you get with software manager)

 

Navigate to Menu/Games/Playonlinux

Launch Playonlinux

At first launch it will create a default folder:  /home/username/.Playonlinux/wineprefix/default

Note:  username is where you put your Mint 13 login

Go ahead and navigate to the default directory and you will see the Windows files like registries and drive_c where your Program Files reside.
I recommend making a shortcut to your desktop because you will be navigating here often to copy/paste game folders and mods.
