program installation malfunction

have 7 pro on my laptop. trying to install a program but when I install the disc in the drive it opens my photoshop elements program!! I've never seen anything like this. what's going on here.

I must add, because i'm sure this has something to do with it, the program is 32bit. family tree maker 16 to be exact. I wanted to try to load it in compatibility mode.

There is no need to load the program in the compatibility mode.
Insert the disc
let Photoshop open
close Photoshop
open Windows (file) Explorer
find/select the CD/DVD in the left pane

See if you see an EXE* file named setup or install. Use that to start the install.
