I can't install a .ISO file (SharePoint2010) on a VMware client (Server 2K8R2)

I have downloaded the SharePoint 2010 package, converted to .iso, uploaded to the VMware environment (Data Store), connected the Win2K8R2 VM server's CD-Drive to the .iso and can see it but when I double-click to run/install the SP package I get the Windows;

Windows can't open this file:

File: SharePointServer_x64_en-us.img

To open this file, Windows needs to know what program you want to use to open it.
 
  Use the Web service to find the correct program
  Select a program from a list of installed programs

Not sure why the file wont run; is it because it has a .img file extension? Not sure why this is either as I thought I had converted it to a .iso. I know they're similar but isn't VMware liking this?
