AN .iso is just a type of compressed file archive. Extract it with something like WinRAR exactly as you would a .zip, .rar, or other archive. Then run setup.exe from the unpacked directory.

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.

I have now moved the more voluminous files off my main hard drive and so can concentrate more on setting up Visual Studio. My question is: I downloaded the .ISO file containing VS express version from Microsoft about a month ago, but due to a defect in my laptop's DVD burner, I could not burn the ISO to disk. There are 5 files waiting to be written. Nevertheless, I went ahead and installed it anyway to see what would happen. I got Visual C# and C++ with no complaints, but I am concerned those 5 files are important. UltraISO creates an e: drive containing the virtual image of the ISO. I have no idea what is going on under the table during the installation process. Does the software actually install those missing 5 files as if they were on the disk? (After all, they are in a known place on the hard drive...) Details, details... Am I in for an unpleasant surprise if I run VS without doing something? If so, how can I avoid it? This laptop has been a gem, but I have run into problems before with this DVD drive. I can't even play some music CDs in it because the scanner won't go all the way to the edge of the disk. I should have known that the big rebate I got when I bought this thing was too good to be true -- I got what I paid for... Ideas welcome.
