    Softwares Can't Be Installed From an External Hard Drive

    When I try to install a software from an external hard drive I can't. But when I copy that file onto desktop I can.

    How to fix that?

    Hi, how does your attempt fail when you try to install a program, and what is the program you're trying to install? What error message do you get? There may be an event in your event log.
