I have HyperV installed and I have a working windows vm.  I need to install SQL 2014 Developers edition but it is not an iso, it is a exe.  How to I install SQL inside the VM?

Thanks,
John

1. Create an ISO, and drop the *.EXE in the ISO on the host.

2. Copy the *.EXE from the Host via the network!

Great idea making a iso, never had the need to.  As for option 2 how do I navigate to my local folder where the file is from inside the VM?

Share a space on either VM or host, and transfer the exe Ito the VM.

The other is download directly from MSDN into the VM.
