Trouble installing Adobe Photoshop CS4

I recently pulled Adobe programs from a friend's macbook pro and burned them onto a DVD. Basically, I went into her folder which contained all of her adobe programs (photoshop, illustrator, dreamweaver, etc..) and program files and dragged them into a blank DVD folder, which I then burned. However, now when i insert that DVD into my mac and try to drag the applications from the DVD onto my hard drive, it comes up with the following message: "The alias "Adobe Photoshop CS4" cannot be copied to the destination, perhaps because this destination does not support this type of alias."

Do i need to download some type of installer in order for it to work properly?

Can anyone help? Thanks for your time...

first....you can't copy programs that way.....

second...you can't legally take a version of software that your friend owns and expect to legally install it on your computer without purchasing

read a book about computers and quit being a cheapskate and buy your own software if you want it so badly
