    I dont know if theres anything that forbid you from reading the files from the CD, but in case you really need a windows station, vmware is your best bet

    Why can't you use Wine? Or Cedega? I've found that Cedega has actually helped on some programs, even if Cedega is meant for gaming...

    I have to install the program from the CD onto the computer, and run the program with the CD in the drive every time. I dont use Wine, but assumed you could not use it for that. Never heard of Cedega, but I'll give it a look.
