Loading Programs (From CD) on Venue 8 Pro

I would like to load several programs onto my Venue 8 Pro.  If it were my laptop, I would simply put the cd in and let the computer do the work.  For the tablet though, I am at a loss.  Please, any information would be great!

RE: Loading Programs (From CD) on Venue 8 Pro

I have a few ideas.

1. (Probably the most practical) Get an external, self powered CD drive, and plug it into the tablet's USB port via an OTG cable.

2. Copy the CD onto another computer's HD, then transfer it to the tablet via a network connection. Then run the setup from the transferred CD files.

3. Using another computer, copy the CD to a flash drive, then connect the flash drive to the tablet's USB port via an OTG cable.

4. A variation on #3.  Using another computer, copy the CD onto a micro SD (in an adapter), then take the micro SD out of the adapter, and insert it into the tablet.

Another suggestion:

Share your CD drive on your computer and access the shared drive from your tablet.
