Sharing a CD ROM Drive

Post by Don Wells »

I have 2 computers connected via a WiFi LAN.
    Computer A:    Windows 7 with a working CD ROM
    Computer B:    Windows 10 with an unusable CD ROM

I want to install Rosetta Stone on computer B from the purchased disk set using the shared CD ROM drive on computer A

Is this feasible?

What pitfalls should I be aware of?

Many thanks in advance.
Regards
Don

Even though most software that runs on Win7 will run on Win10 you should check to make sure your version is compatible with Win10.

If it is, you should be ok.
