By the way, what is the software on the CD?
You can check if there is Linux verion of that software.

If not, try "wine" or "crossover"

For Wine:
$ sudo apt-get install wine

After installed wine,
$ wine /path-to-setup.exe (on CD)
to see if you can install it inside "wine"

Good luck.

Commented:
Just double click on it and the apt will install it.
if it is a source file .tar.gz
make sure you've the built extras installed (make+library)

1- extract it
2- go to directory where you've extracted the files
3- user # ./configure  (if needed)
4- # make
5- # install

thanks
