OK. That won't work for me. I run Linux on all my machines. Are the magazines directly accessible on the DVD without an install involved? In other words, can you insert the DVD, then open your file browser and simply select an issue and open it? The issues would need to be in a format other than proprietary. Maybe as PDF files.
If they are PDF, I could just open the file. Have you tried exploring the contents of the DVD, not by using any installed components? Just launch Windows Explorer (I guess it's now called File Explorer) then find one of the magazine issues and right click, then open. If they are PDF files it should open right up.
