.iso file and VMWare

I have an .iso file, that does not include a VM, and is therefore not a source for a VM

When I burn the .iso to disk, it creates a directory structure on disk, and provides an installation procedure.

Now I need to isntall this directory onto a VMWare VM, and I have the installation device on a DBD

What is the easiest way for me to install the installation procedure (.exe) onto the VM, when its source is a DBD

Thanks

Upload the ISO to the datastore, and then connect the ISO (you have created) to the VM.

Once connected to the VM via RDP or via the console, browse the contents of the CD (e.g. D: drive) and double click your *.EXE
