Those links won't help because you have to install from the disc first.

Get a USB CD drive. You can get them for $20 or less.

If you have a usb port, you can buy a external CD/DVD drive.

The USB CD drive is a good idea. Or FastStone Image Viewer, Screen Capture, Photo Resizer ... is an alternative. I use it for viewing on my vacation netbook. Others say it is good for processing though I don't use it for that.

Put your CD in another computer, make an ISO of the CD, copy the ISO image to a USB drive, copy the ISO back on your laptop and mount it with an ISO utility.

All of the offered solutions should work but you can also copy the folders and files from another computer, put them on a flash drive or cloud storage, download to your computer and then run. I just did that on my new laptop and it worked fine.
