Windows 7: Do I Need Just The .EXE Installation File?

Do I Need Just The .EXE Installation File?

I have a Symantec Antivirus CD. However, the computer I want to install the antivirus on has a non-working disc drive, so the CD is useless for it, and I was going to put the disc in another computer disc drive, then transfer its contents to a USB flash drive, then use the USB on the computer I want to have the antivirus program. However, it's disc drive nor its USB ports work.

So what I thought was, using the disc on another computer, and attaching the disc contents in an email, or on megaupload. However, I can't attach folders. I have to attach files, not folders, like a .exe file for instance.

So I was only able to send to myself, online, the .exe installation file of the Symantec Antivirus program I want to install on the computer.

Is the .exe installation file all I need for the program?

You can download the installer from Symantec Norton.
