Re: installation questions

how do you extract from an ISO? Is that what UltraISO is supposed to do? 
Setup.exe is only one of the files in the ISO -- there is an inf file that 
supposedly runs when the disk is inserted into the drive.  I haven't fired 
up UltraISO since I bought it more than a month ago -- I did what I needed 
to do (or so I thought) and then let it sit.

Ok I remember -- I wanted to burn the dvd so I could install the software on 
other laptops.  Wouldn't you know the buggy drive is on my main machine.
Thanks Ty -- I confess I'm a little impatient with windows apps. Compared to 
the unix/linux stuff I was used to as a student, windows is one big straight 
jacket.
Take care.

laura,
You can just extract the files and run setup.exe


Thanks,

My programs don't have bugs, they're called randomly added features.
