Is there a way to get XP to open ISO files for installation? I get the
message "windows cannot open this file" when I try to install the
files. Thank you in advance.

An ISO image file is an exact representation of a CD or DVD, including the content and the logical format. ISO files from MSDN end with either an .ISO or .IMG extension. The extension might need to be changed to work with your CD writing software. Common utilities for writing an ISO file to recordable media such as CD-R include ISORecorder, Nero, and Roxio. The contents of images files can be extracted to hard drive using utilities such as ISObuster or DaemonTools. Image files can be mounted locally using the Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel for Windows XP.

Download Daemon Tools, mount the ISO with it, go into My Computer,
there should be a new virtual drive with the contents of that ISO.
