You can just extract the files and run setup.exe

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

Subject: installation questions

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.
