a few things may be happening here, one is the file may be corrupt, two the machine may not be able to read the cdr correctly. try this
copy the file to a folder on your hard drive, and then right click on it, and choose properties, and uncheck the read only attribute. then try and install it

If it is an older machine, it might have problems reading a CDR.  Some pc's just want to have the original CD and there is not much else you can do about it.  You can try copying the contents to the harddrive and then running the program but I still don't think it is going to work.
