Cannot install software on Windows 8

I am unable to install some software on my computer running Windows 8.  When I insert the disk, I can hear it running but nothing happens.  If I click on it in my computer and tell it to load, again nothing happens.  This happens with some software and not others.  The software says that it is compatible with Windows 8.
