How to install programs from a disc on Windows 10

If installation doesn't start automatically, browse the disc to find the program setup file, usually called Setup.exe or Install.exe. Open the file to start installation.

  • Insert the disc into your PC, and then follow the instructions on your screen. You might be asked for an admin password.

  • If install doesn't start automatically, check your AutoPlay settings.

    1. In the search box on the taskbar, type AutoPlay settings and select it from the results.

    2. Make sure AutoPlay is On.

  • You can also choose AutoPlay defaults for removable drives and memory cards.
