Downloads are exe files not iso - how to burn RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello!

    Have downloaded vail pre -view but the downloaded images are .exe-files not .iso files. Dobbleclick opens for short moment the command window but nothing happens.

    How to burn this downloads to Cd and DVD?

    Is it only to rename to .iso?

    Best regards

  • They should be disk images (.iso format) not .exe files. Try downloading using Microsoft's File Transfer Manager (FTM) utility, instead of directly in whatever browser you're using.

    Once you've downloaded all the files, check them with a CRC or SHA1 generator to make sure they downloaded successfully, then burn the disk images using whatever software you prefer that can burn a disk image to create a bootable CD/DVD.

  • Dieter,

    You are talking about downloading the VAIL "preview refresh" installation media?
    Where did you get the .exe files? I can see only .iso files in the MS Connect download section?
