  For the sake of clarification I'm going to explain my position a
little bit better. I plan on sending my excutable to a user that is
not in a close proximity to myself. So if I wanted to burn a CD I
would need to mail this CD to him.The price of a CD is irrelevant to
the questions that I asked. I don't want to take this approach to
accomplish my goal.

Furthermore, I don't have enough computer programming experience to
know that I could put my excutable on a website and distribute the
information that way.
