Microsoft Imagine general frequently asked questions

 

Of particular note: Some software downloaded from the Microsoft Imagine site are in the form of .iso files. It is not necessary to burn these files to a CD or DVD in order to install the software.

.iso files can be “extracted” to get to individual files, like the setup.exe installer file, using a free program like 7-Zip:

1) download and install the free program named 7-Zip:

http://www.7-zip.org/

 

2) right-click the .iso file downloaded from the Microsoft Imagine software site, move the mouse pointer over 7-Zip, click Extract files…

right_click_extract_files

 

3) click OK

extract_ok

 

7-Zip will “extract” the contents of the .iso file and leave you with a folder full of files.

 

4) double-click the just-created-folder, double-click the installer file (usually setup.exe) to run through the software installation

double-click_setup.exe_file
