    My computer is struggling to read a disk. A computer next to me can read the disk. Is there a way I can put the disk into computer two and via the network access the disk drive on the other computer and install the application?

    I need to do this in the next 20 minutes. If you have any ideas or anything please post it.

    Yes. If you have the systems set up for file sharing simply share the CD drive. At least, it kinda sounds like that's what you want to do.
