Default Copy contents of a CD to PC Win 10

I bought a technical CD and it loads the app on my PC but want the CD mounted, to access the data files.

How and where can I copy the files from the CD, to the PC, so I can run it without having to use my external CD drive?

The only way I know to do it is to create an ISO from the CD, and then "mount" it.

Should work, unless the software is extremely smart and searches for certain key points on the CD.

They do it mostly to save people form burning the space on the hard drive - and to ensure you're running original software. Without the CD, you probably don't have the license.

I created an ISO file but the app won't let me find it.
It wants it from the CD drive.

I tried it again and ran the setup from the HD, again and it works now.

There's more than one way to skin a cat.
