You could try the interpreter version from the Fate of Atlantis demo. Rename it to monkey.exe. It is compatible to the Monkey Island resources. Unfortunately, there is an inconvenient script in Monkey Island checking for the CD, which means, you can't replace the original tracks with the special edition's, since they differ in their playing times.
Another problem might be the savegame menu. Not all versions of the interpreter have the ability to select a path on a different drive, which is required for SCUMM V5 CD versions. I didn't check.
