HOW TO INSTALL .ISO FILES?

An ISO image is simply a "virtual copy" of an optical CD/DVD disc. Lots of software is distributed in the form of ISO images (e.g. Microsoft Office). To mount an ISO file means to access its contents as if it was recorded on a physical medium and then inserted in the optical drive. If you downloaded a software in the form of an ISO image and want to install it, mounting it will be faster and easier than recording it on an actual disc.

Windows 10 can natively mount the .iso file. Just right click the installation file(.iso), select Mount and run setup.exe to install the software(Method 1 or Method 2 not needed)

Method 1: Using WinRar (easier)

1. Download the .iso file provided in the email

2. You can open the .iso file already downloaded like an archive using archive tools like WinRAR.
