Question about Computers & Internet
It sounds as if the executables you purchased are installation files, not the programs themselves. In order for them to work, you would need to be able to install them onto the CD so you can run them. The problem with that is most installation files need to tap into an operating system, and place .dll or .sys files into your OS.
If you're planning to make these applications run from the CD, and use them on the same computer all the time, you can choose to install them on a drive and then mirror that drive into the CD (as it's unlikely that the installation process will allow you to install onto a CD itself.)
If you're planning on using these applications to be mobile and use them from any computer at any time, you will need to put a bootable operating system onto your CD and install them onto that CD. Unfortunately, CD's don't hold a lot of space for an OS to reside on as well as your apps, and installation onto optical media like that is problematic at best. Your best bet would be to put a bootable OS onto a thumb drive, which has far larger capacity options, and then install them onto the thumb drive. You would only be able to run those apps when booting from that thumb drive, however.
This is a very common method for IT engineers, by the way, to carry around problem resolution tools -- they just have a bootable thumb drive with their preferred apps, and they can use them wherever they want.
