Do a google search for the phrase "Mount DVD as a drive" or "DVD Emulator"
There's tons of applications that allow you to mount an .iso as a drive.
Fools OS into thinking the ISO is another drive.
Then just run the setup file from inside that.

newbieal-

I concur with TomPro.  In particular, I use DaemonTools lite.  It's freeware. www.daemon-tools.cc  You open an .iso file via an open file dialog, then select which drive letter to associate, for example "F:".  Then, you can browse F:\ like any removable media.

Installing large items such as VS via a mounted ISO, in my experience, runs faster than by using the optical drive.

Cheers!

I just did a google search for "daemon tools device problem 39".
Others have seen this error as well.  I'm sure by now you've noticed a lot of suggestions have to do with updating drivers.  Perhaps try uninstall and reinstall DT but read any dialogs carefully regarding drivers.

It looks like DT4 might not be the way to go.
Like MTEXX suggested, there's been lots of problems, especially with driver conflicts.
If you can find and download a copy of DT3 (which I use), you should be fine.

Or, since you didn't buy DT, go do the same search again, and find another company who provides same tool.
