PowerISO5-x64.exe ...

I have PowerISO5-x64.exe in my old computer. I suppose I can just copy it to my new computer and run it so that I could install "en_visual_studio_ultimate_2013_with_update_2_x86_dvd_4238214.iso" from a folder in the new computer.

Please confirm this and also give me some details if necessary because I cannot find its readme file.

I suppose, after installing  PowerISO5-x64.exe on the new computer, upon execution it will give me some interface to show .iso file to install it, correct?

That is correct,

But you can also use a program like WinRAR to open the ISO file and uncompress to a folder in your hard disc and then just install it from there.

If the PowerISO.exe is corrupted, you can download any ISO freeware just to mount your ISO and install the software. Like http://www.isodisk.com/

Hi Mike;

Were you not going to use Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel from the last post?

As far as PowerISO I have used it some time ago but have not used it since. If I remember correctly it does have a help file with instructions on what to do for each function.

Hi Fernando,

Yes, I was planing to do that. But I came across PowerISO in my old computer. I wanted to check if it will do the job instead of downloading Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel.

On one hand, PowerISO is such that you can pay for it or use it for free. I kind of have lost my last two computers by downloading whatever I find on the net. And that is no good. Only my concern is if I run PowerISO.exe in my new computer, some bugs come along as well. I am kind of paranoid to tell the truth.

Also, I think bugs come during the download not executing file like PowerISO.exe.

So, Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel seems to suggest it is for XP; but I need to read it again.

Early morning I will read the instruction again and make a decision on the choice of install.

Also, there is a followup question at:

Hi Mike;

Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel supports Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7.

I normally do not worry about load order because with packages that have special requirements Microsoft checks for pre-requisites before starting the install giving you the opportunity to load the needed software. But I do not see any issues with the load order you wish to use.

pre-requisites is different than installation order. For a novice like me, if the order is correct, then I don't have to be a software mechanic after the installation. I have had that experience and got stuck. And the discussions in the links included in my new question seems to suggest the order is important.

Hi Mike;

Also unless you need the full blown IIS package Visual Studio has the developers IIS Express that comes with Visual Studio. It will save you lots of disk space and configuring it. Please see this link

Thank you for the link. IIS in addition to facilitating web pages, it also facilitates SSRS functionality. I will read trough to see if IIS included in Visual Studio handles SSRS needs.

Also, working with stand alone IIS is a good education to have. I wonder what version of Visual Studio started maintaining internal IIS. I guess I will find that out by reading the link.

Thanks,

Mike
