Re: installation questions

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.
Take care.

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

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

Hi all -- I'm a bit behind here, but I blame it on computer constraints...
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.
Thanks.
