Crossover- how to 'install' simple exe executables?

I have some small Windows apps that don't have installers, and just consist of a single executable. If I double-click them, it will start up the Crossover installer. The PC executable will then run and I can use it, and I can cancel the Crossover installer fine.

But is there a way of 'installing' these executables in a particular bottle, etc.? So I can run Crossover, and then run the app from 'Programs' menu within Crossover?


PS- A second question- does Crossover support the optical drive? I downloaded an open source app called 'DVDisaster' that creates par/recovery files for scratched disks. The app installs and runs, but does not detect when I insert a disk.

I want to know how to do this too.

What Crossover does is use and .exe installer and then install the actual program. What I want is to know how to just launch the and .exe, because in some case the .exe is the program itself and not the installer!
