Opening the .ISO file with WinRAR

With WinRAR you can open an .iso file as a normal archive, without having to burn it to a disk. This requires that you download and install WinRAR first, of course.
  1. Downloading WinRAR.
    Go to and download WinRAR 3.71 to your disk. This will be a file with a name such as wrar371.exe.

  2. Install WinRAR.
    Run the .EXE program you downloaded. In the setup, make certain that the checkbox for .ISO files is checked. I recommend that you UNcheck the checkbox for .ZIP files; let Windows handle that one. The install will put a new item in your All Programs menu.

  3. Run WinRAR.
    Click Start-All Programs-WinRAR-WinRAR.

  4. Open the .iso File
    In WinRAR, open the .ISO file from the folder in which it was placed:

  5. Extract the File Tree.
    Click-drag the ENGLISH folder out of WinRAR to your disk, either to the desktop or to a new, empty folder that you can find easily. The extraction process may take a couple of minutes.

  6. Close WinRAR.
