Hello expert,

I trying to allow users access to training software that can only be run from
cd.
For security requirements the workstation that will be using the software
 has deny access to cd rom and usb ports.
I do not want to relax my security policy , but will like to allow users to access
above training cd.

Could any expert offer suggestions

If the software that controls the access to the CD drive doesn't specifically allow for this setup, and you can't make an iso of the CD and mount this on the workstations, then there's exactly nothing you can do under the given restrictions, sorry.

your current control policy does not allow users to access *physical* CDROM. but it does not mean the policy cannot cover the CDROM in a virtual machine. therefore, cover your training software CD into an ISO file, and setup a virtual machine to run the software.

you may consider using MS Virtual PC. it is *free*.
