Copy CD’s contents at all ( with masked contents ) to a folder.
For example, c:office.
regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWAREClassesInstallerProducts<Compressed GUID>
GUID is the original ID of the CD.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE ->
SOFTWAREClassesInstallerProducts<Compressed GUID>SourceListNet
Name ; 1
Size ; REG_SZ or EXPAND_SZ
Value ; folder’s full path ( c:office).
