Is it possible to use a DVD drive on one computer (my laptop) to install a program on another computer (my desktop) via a network and have it set up so that the desktop looks to the DVD drive on the laptop for files the program needs to run?

I hope I made that coherent enough to get an accurate answer.

If I remember correctly, all you have to do is copy the files and reg keys and move it to the main computer through the network. Correct me if I'm wrong, ne 1 please.

If you just want to share your DVD drive, then yes, it's very possible. Just set it to be shared using Windows networking. Then you can use the shared drive from any computer in your network, just like it was on that PC.

That has nothing to do with what he's asking.

I'll try that, thank you.
