It is very rare to find an EXE file that is stand alone these days!!!

 

That means you have to have the full Install Program in order for it to work on a PC.

 

What is misleading you is that once a program is properly installed, you can generally copy the EXE file somewhere else on that PC and it will run. – NOT ALWAYS!

 

The short answer then is NO! Application Programs are not portable.

What error messages are you getting? It's possible that the CD has become unreadable.
