I have a (partial & ugly) solution here.

First, copy the entire cd contents into a folder on the computer. e.g. "C:\Program Files\The Learning Company\Reader Rabbit Reading 6-8 full cd copy" Then run the installer from \INSTALL\SETUP32.EXE

DO NOT delete the files which you copied off the cd.

What this does is it installs the program as if it installed off the cd, and creates initialization files which look to check that a certain file exists **in the location that you installed from** - You have fooled the launcher into thinking that the cd is in place.

However I am still not completely satisfied, because every time you launch the program, Windows 7 requires administrator privileges (so my kids have to come and ask me for my password every time).

I used to have Reader Rabbit for my daughter and we launched from the hard drive without the CD Rom. What error message are you getting? Are you sure you copied everything from all discs?

For us, I remember opening the folder and looking for the launcher. It has a ".exe" file extension (in Windows). Finding the right file is the challenge! If you click on it and it starts the game, you've got it. It was trial and error. Simply right click your mouse on that file and create a shortcut from the exe file where you want it, i.e, desktop, start menu, etc., for future use.

Hope that helps!

Risk of losing data by re-booting CD-ROM recovery disk


Copy off your data to another computer before recovering. A recovery usually restores to factory settings and loses all data.
You could boot to Ubuntu or Linux and copy your stuff that way, then when restored, copy it back.

How do I download from disc to Acer Aspire one


Hello,

If you need to load software(such as device drivers) from Optical Media) in a system without an ODD Drive, follow these steps:

1. Log in to another PC in your vicinity that has an Optical Disk Drive.
2. Insert the CD/DVD into the PC and copy its' contents over to that PC.
3. Copy over that content to a USB Storage Device (USB Drive, External HDD, etc).
4. Unplug the External HDD/USB Drive with the content from the PC and plug it in your Laptop/Netbook.
5. Copy over the relevant content over to the netbooks' hard drive.

Alternatively, download the needed drivers from Acer's support website.

If you're worried, put the small CD-ROM into some other computer, and copy the entire contents to a full-size CD-recordable disk (or to a USB memory-stick).

Then, carry the CD-R (or the memory-stick) to your computer.

Go to the Acer web site Support and Drivers, put your model number in, your operating system and order a DVD with a factory image for your Aspire One. It may cost you, but maybe not.

Error 106 (net::ERR_INTERNET_DISCONNECTED): The Internet connection has been lost.


The error "ComponentMoveData...Error Number: -106..." indicates that the installer cannot decompress a file. This can happen if the CD-ROM is dirty or damaged, if hard disk space is insufficient, or if the installer conflicts with an application or device driver.

((this is what I'm not exactly clear on))

You could try copying the contents of your CD-ROM (or the essential folders) to your HDD or a network drive. You will soon find out of there is dirt or damage on the CD, and if not, you can easily then install from your HDD or network drive.
