Installation File Won't Run Without Iso Burning Software


Problem installing downloaded version of windows 7 professional on a netbook running xp with no external dvd drive - installation file won't run without iso burning software. I downloaded windows 7 professional to install on my netbook running windows xp - the help indicated that this would be possible and would avoid the need for an external dvd drive but because it needs to be a clean install the file downloaded is a . Iso file which i guess needs to be burnt to a cd to run?

Is there any way of getting round this without getting an external dvd drive, possibly by using alcohol120% to mount it on a virtual drive - i guess this could be a problem with a clean install, so would it work if i put it on my external hard drive?

Live File System Burning Problem

I had a problem with windows 7 home premium & live file system burning. Slow burning and reduced dvd disc capacity - see orig post below. This is not an uncommon problem and is windows 7 related - it is a universal disk format file system driver issue. There is a hotfix available - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/975617. See issue 3. It worked.

"I burn slowly at 500k and approx. 1gb will "fill" a 4. 7gb dvd. I've updated drivers, bios, motherboard chipset drivers, burner firmware and installed a new burner. Nero burns fine as does a mastering burn. Dvd+r & dvd-r discs are affected. Dvd-rw burn fast and with no problems. I have done a clean install of windows 7 and applied updates, yet i have the same problem. There is no av or other software running - just windows 7. All drivers are windows certified afaik. No usb devices either.

If i do a clean install of vista sp2 business on the same machine, there is no problem and i can burn live file system dvd discs on any media at >3mb/sec and get full disc capacity. So it's definitely windows 7 related. "

Explorer Will Not Copy 8gb Iso Image File To External Drive

Windows explorer will not copy an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space says file is too large for the destination file system. I tried copying an 8gb iso image file to an external drive with 185gb of free space and windows explorer keeps giving me the message "file is too large for the destination file system".

Then i tried copying the same file to a separate partition on my hard drive and it worked smoothly. I also tried copying a folder containing the sae content and about the same size and it also copied easily. I don't understand why it will not copy the 8gb iso file. By the way i am using windows 7 ultimate.

Driver Software Installation

I have a problem with windows driver installation. My notebook has a bluetooth and is already installed with proper driver. Every time i boot the machine the "driver software installation" starts and finalize with saying that device driver was not successfully installed. Furthermore the detail describe this is caused by bluetooth peripheral device. Actually i tried to connect my bluetooth phone before but did not succeed. Every time i reboot the same thing happens.

Now, i have disabled windows update, i have disabled the devices and also tried the device installation settings in the control panel etc. But nothing stops this "driver software installation" from starting at the next boot. Is there any way to disable the "driver software installation" from automatically running again and again?

Run Exe File Issue

Windows 7: when i try to run exes it asks me to "choose program", says it can't verify signature of ms download. I just installed windows 7 and now when i try to run exes (e.g. , I just download an anti-virus program) it ask me to choose a program to open the file. Not sure it  it's related, but i then tried to download mss anti-virus and for that it tells me that it can't verify the digital signature for the file and will not open it (it continues that "a recent hardware or software change may have installed a file that is incorrect or damaged. "). So i can't seem to install anything right now

Unable To Run .exe File Type Problem

Would like to delete dos mode, i operate a "windows 7 home premium" laptop. A few days ago i was attempting to download an updated version of'adobe flash player' which never seemed to complete. It seemed directly after being at the adobe site that any time i try to open an exe file (executable), the file is sent to wordpad in 'dos mode'. I have never came across this situation before. My son-in-law came by last night and tried to run some kind of program off a usb stick, and he said, 'it would run'. After he left i was able to get on the internet, but still have the problem with exe type files.

Burning Error In Media Player

I am using windows media player to burn a few cd's and i keep getting the same error message. The error message i get is:windows media player encountered an error while burning. Verify the burner is connected properly and that the disc is clean and not damaged. I use to not have any problems burning cds and now all of a sudden i do. Wmp acts like it is burning the cd and goes through the status completed, but as soon as it gets to 99% complete, the cd kicks out and i get the above error message.

Also, when it 'acts' like it is burning the cd, it goes through the process a lot faster than when it really is burning a cd. I am also using brand new cds, that are not scratched or damaged. I am using a laptop, so as far as i know, the burner is connected properly. I'm not sure what to do or how to resolve my issue.

Problem With Burning Files To Dvd+r

I can burn a disc using the "with a cd/dvd player" then when i try to burn using the "like a usb flash drive" option, windows 7 formats the disc asks me to "open folder to view files. This opens another window that tells me to "drag files to this folder to add them to the disc. " I then drag the file from my desk top and it is there, and i click on eject, which gives me "preparing to eject, please wait" while windows prepares the disc for other computers to use (or something like that). The disc is then ejected. Here is where my problems begin. When i put the dvd+r back in, i receive the message option of  "open folder to view files" so i click on it.

This brings the file on the dvd+r to appear. I can open it to reveal its content and i can open and change a document. However, the next time i try to open any of the documents i get this message " d: is not accessible. The disk structure is corrupted and unreadable, " or "this file cannot be found. " I then eject the disk and reinsert it and have to open it manualy. It shows up as needing to be burned, so i click on the folder, and then "burn to disc. " I then get "prepare this disc" click on next and get "there was error burning this disc. The disc might no longer be useable" and it is automatically ejected.

Install Win 7 Rtm Via Iso - License Is Invalid

Okay, so i know it's not the best way to go about this but non the less it is what i need to do now. I am too backed up with other systems work and non systems work to do a complete re-install right now. I have the windows rt 7100 on my computer. I am reading how to do the work around of installing via this way, see link, http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd446674%28ws. 10%29.aspx.

I have the windows 7 rtm downloaded and also a copy on a disc as well as an upgrade company from my new computer. They are all windows 7 professional. I want to burn the iso to a disc and i am having trouble finding the iso when i view the download files and or the disc that i put in.

I also backed everything up but am concerned that i can copy all the files and data over, i did a systems image backup using the software in the windows rc version and saved it to an external hard drive.

Two questions, in doing the upgrade via this method does that mean that i don't have to re-install all of my other programs at this time?

At some point, i will do it anyways, i just want to know all the ramifications, will the system tell me that my license is invalid or check and cause an alert of this. I have my license keys for all of my copies of windows professional 7, so will it prompt me to put the right licenses in at some point in the upgrade?

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

Cannot Reinstall Software

I purchased an add on to fsx which the manufacturer said is compatible to w7. Yet, the software did not work in fsx. The manufacturer suggested uninstalling and re-installing it. But when i did that i got an error saying it was error code 0 i cannot reinstall because there was a read only file in the folder. Meanwhile, another game stopped working. I uninstalled it  and reinstalled it. That game's opening screening appears, but the game cannot load.

Someone suggested that this is due to w7 security protections. I do not know if that is the case but a solution to this (and if anyone has a way to make w7 behave like xp) would be much appreciated.

Software Legitimacy

I purchased a new laptop in late december 2009 which came pre-loaded with windows 7 and there were no problems until a few days ago when i started getting messages pop up to say i might have counterfeit software or build 7600 of windows 7 is not genuine. I followed the steps regarding activation and i ticked all the boxes. I have a 25 digit product code on a genuine certificate of authenticity on the laptop. I have looked at the update history and note that there was an update applied on january 31st called office genuine advantage notifications (kb949810) and i am wondering if this update has caused the messages to start appearing.

Jasc Software Not Working

I have a new laptop with windows 7 premium pre-installed by dell. I loaded some jascphoto software that i purchased numerous years ago with my dell desktop. When i purchased my laptop i was told this software would be compatible with my new computer and its os. The install seemed to go fine. I am able to open the product and move around in its offered programs but it does not read or even recognize for that matter that i have a photo dvd in the d drive.

I am very, very green at all this computer stuff. I have been limping around 'help' options and searches and have found that this software is being considered for compatibility by microsoft and the software maker. I am concerned that if i attempt any of the suggestions on the forums that regard making older software compatible with 7 that i will get way too over my head a screw things up. Would you suggest that i wait until the compatibility is decided between ms and jasc and just use the ms program that came with my 7?

So that being said. If i do go back and use the program that came with 7 how do i return that to my default program?
