Default how to run a software without CD when its required to insert CD in the CD ROM

I've a software. And I installed it on my HD. But after install it, when I run it, it required to insert its CD in the CD Rom then run.

I want to run it without inserting its CD in the CD ROM.

I've copied it all file in HD. But I don't know how to change its path where its file to execute.

WHAT THE WAY TO RUN IT.

I agree! Make an ISO of the CD using Alcohol 120% and use Alcohol 120%'s virtual drive to mount the ISO..then done and done no more CD needed

Can this work with games too? and could I use Deamon Tools instead of Alcohol 120% I mean is it just as good?

It works perfect with games! This is how I play all my games and keep the original CD's safe and protected Also sometimes you NEED Dameon tools to run around some of the protection Alcohol cant get passed. They work good as a team.
