Mounting ISO file only yields three MSI files

I have an ISO file that I'm hoping to mount so as to install Windows 10 IoT Core to  a Raspberry Pi

This is the ISO file name -->  Windows10_IoTCore_Packages_en-us_16299.iso

But when I click Mount, I get not a disk image but three MSI files.

  Here's the name of one of them  --> Windows_10_IoT_Core_X86_Packages.msi

When I click on the file, it starts an installation process.

I've watched in trepidation a few times as it starts an installation and then aborted it because I don't know where the installation is taking place,  I surely don't want to overwrite the Windows 10 Pro OS on the PC where I'm doing this work!  Ultimately I want a bootable copy of Windows 10 IoT Core on an Micro SD card that I can put in my Raspberry.  So, how do I do that?

Oh one more thing. Mounting the ISO seems to create a virtual DVD drive with drive letter E (my "real" DVD drive is letter D), and I see the three MSI files on the E drive,  

So, If I run an MSI file is it going to create a disk image of an Windows IoT Core installation disk on the DVD?  Which I can then copy to the Micro SD?

I know this is elementary stuff, but it's new to me,  Thanks for any help understanding this.

Or do I copy the MSI file to the SD card, put the SD card in the Pi, and then click to install?

May I suggest you download Raspberry Noobs. You can install Windows 10 IoT from it

hi

Packages are the logical building blocks of IoT Core. From device drivers to system files, every component must be contained in a package. This is the smallest servicable unit on the device.
Windows10_IoTCore_Packages_en-us_16299.iso contains all currently available Packages for all Architectures

FFU images allow you to apply an image of a physical drive, including Windows, recovery, and system partition information all at once directly to a different drive. This is what you really need to install on a device.

Microsoft provides FFU's for some of the Raspberry Pi 2 and 3 Boards and for Qualcomm's DragonBoard 410c

The easy way to setup a device is the Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard (that's the recommended way), this tool also helps you to manage your device(s), the already mentioned Noobs and other possibilities for more advanced users like DISM
more information at Windows 10 Internet of Things

Windows 10 IoT Core Dashboard and Images provided by Microsoft are available at Windows IoT Core Downloads and Tools
