RE: Copy files to different dir
1. integrate portable soft as any another soft in CD
2. as install step use xcopy instead of "anysetup.exe" like:
xcopy "%cdrom%\portable\firefox" "c:\progs\firefox" /S /R

this copy a directory from CD to your directory on HDD. Read more help about xcopy in internet.

RE: Copy files to different dir
Thank you very much.
It works great now.
Only the program asks me if its a file or a directory so i needed another switch

xcopy "%CDROM%\Software\Portable" "c:\Portable" /R /S /I

i have put an /I after it , does that seems right to you or is it in the wrong place?

That is unimportant. And I think it better to use /Y instead of /R
