I've downloaded our Office 2010 program from MS under our Software Assurance, but it's in ISO format and I don't know how to install from it. Can somebody tell me what to do, please.

Thanks, Mary

Most of the CD/DVD copier programs have an option to "burn" an ISO file. It's basically a CD image file. Once on a CD you can easily install it. Maybe Mick can give you waaaaaaay more details.

Hi Mary,
You have to burn the ISO to a disc first, then install from the disc.

I've burned it to disk, but all I get when I try to install it from the disk is "Burn to disk" again, and no option to install or put it any place other than the DVD drive.

Will call MS tomorrow and maybe they'll send me a disk or else walk me through how to install the downloaded ISO file. Thanks.

Did your CD burning software offer an option to "Burn ISO Image"? It will be a special process.

Hi Mary. Just got back to town after a fun but exhausting trip to the Gulf.

David is right, as I understand it, but it is a confusing process to explain. This is how I think of it--you know how when you have a new application, you cant just copy it, you have to install it? Well the ISO burning process it similar, the ISO file should not be copied to the CD, it needs to be soft of installed with a special switch on the CD/DVD burning software. After you "burn" the ISO file, look at the CD in Windows Explorer. If you see an ISO file on there it is wrong. Instead you should see the things that were included in the ISO package.
