Some programs capable of extracting RAR files, like WinRAR, can also extract ISO files into a folder so you don't need to burn a DVD... "Maybe"... some DVD programs want to access a DVD to install for security reason and (most) some don't and can just be installed after the ISO contents are extracted into a folder. I don't recall in this case.I’m the opposite. I know Apple, but I just got an old PC yesterday for this purpose and forscan. So I know nothing about windows. Installing windows 10 last night.
Need to find a RAR extractor to get the ISO. Then, you say windows 10 mounts the volume? So I don’t need to burn a dvd?
I do vaguely recall something about, that if running the program and it can't find the files it needs, you may need to edit some ini file to point to the correct drive letter where you have the folder with the files from the ISO, for example the ini file may have "E:" or "D:" in it expecting that to be your DVD drive letter but if you put the folder with files on "C:" you'd need to edit the ini file to read "C:" instead.
Other programs like Daemon Tools can mount an ISO file as a virtual drive to use it that way instead and the software has no idea it's not a real DVD. Not sure if there's a free version of WinRAR but there is of Daemon Tools.
