Need a program to run without cd

Hello, at my school I work at has only one software that needs a CD to run. But we have net books that doesn't have a disc drive. I've tried to make a iso of the disc so we can run it off the server but the program doesn't see it in the virtual drive it will install the program just fine but when you try to run the program it give a error that it needs the CD. So what can I do so we can use this program on the net books with out a CD.

What software is it?
Sometimes, if you unpack the ISO to hard drive, then install the software from the location you unpacked to, it won't ask for a cd/dvd to run.

Or try a different image mounter, many of them like powerISO and such don't do too good a job at pretending to be a real DVD drive.
Give Damon Tools Lite, or Alcohol 52% a try.

Okay, I'll try some of those programs.

Install winrar compression/decompression software.Right click on the said ISO file choose any "extract" options depending on the location you want the files to be extracted.

I suspect you need to actually read his post.

The program is a QuickTime program. It uses QuickTime to run the program.
