Default Using one computer to install program on another?

Hey guys, I have a friend whose Dell CD RW is no longer working (6mos out of warranty) and needs help. He has a program that was installed requiring the use of the CD to access info,etc (as opposed to doing a full HD install). Now that the CD drive doesn't work, he can't use the program.

I installed the program to my HD and tried copying everything I could find over to his via my Jumpdrive but there must be some files that I missed (installed all appropriate program folders/files w/the program name). The program says it can't access the program.

What other files are installed when a program does a full HD install vs a setup that runs off the CD (and where should I look for these?)..

Any way to install from the CD from my computer to his Dell laptop?

Thanks

Jeremy

if it's a large size cd with many programs, find the folder of the program on a cd and copy the install, then put it in temp dir on his comp and run it.
Or if cd is small, like 100mb, make an image out of it, transfer it to his comp, plug it into something like daemon tools and run it.

first is easier.

If you can get the computers on the same network do the following:

- On the computer with a working CD drive, share the CD drive. This is usually a right click on the drive, select 'Sharing', then 'Share this folder', then call it something like 'CD'

- On the computer without the working CD, map the now shared 'CD'.

- Now you should have a network drive on machine that is the CD drive. open it, and find the setup program.


I had to use this method quite often for an old laptop that did not have an internal CD drive once the docking station broke.

Let me know if you are not PC savy any need more detailed instructions.

Thanks guys.....well, I USED to be pretty savvy when I was younger. I called myself the DOS Guru but then didn't have a computer for a few years till XP came around. Talk about a crash course in relearning everything....

But anyway, I got it. Yerm's suggestion regarding copying the install files worked...talk about not seeing the forest....I ended up erasing the preexisting folders and copying the entire CD over to the computer via Flashdrive, then ran the installation. Worked fine....

Thanks again
