    Expand ISO

    I am about to embark on a journey of discovery and have fallen at the first stile

    The story so far ....
    • Transitioning from Exchange 2003 to Exchange 2010 - following some articles from Technet amongst others
      Exchange 2003 is on a physical W2k3 server
      Exchange 2010 is to go on a virtual W2k10 R2 server
      I have the ISO for Exchange 2010 and need to set some command switches on the setup.exe file (I think that's what it says)
      I am doing all this remotely


    Now my questions
    - I assume that I need to burn the ISO to disc before I can set the switches?
    - if I do then how can I burn the ISO to an ordinary folder, rather than a physical disc in the DVD/RW drive?

    Is there an obvious way to do this that I'm not seeing?

    you can mount an iso using daemon tools lite or such. I use VirtualCloneDrive I think by Elaborate Bytes which is free

    No worries. Its pretty easy to use. Just right click on the CD icon in the taskbar, select mount Image, browse to the .iso and it will mount it as a CD-Drive in My Computer

    OK but will it be a writable disc or will I need to transfer all the files to the hard drive?

    No it will be just like a DVD-ROM or CD-ROM

    Why would you need to write to it?

    If you need to run setup.exe with switches, just click start->Run-> type "e:\setup.exe /flag1 /flag2"

    Oh I thought that the switches would be added to the setup.exe file - hence the write to disc question. (can you tell I haven't done this before?)

    switches are just runtime parameters added to the command, you dont need to physically change the file.

    Its liike doing DIR /P

    The command is DIR to show the directorly listing. The /P just splits it up into page at a time view

    If you ever just want to extract an iso, you can do so with 7zip. It extracts it to a folder like Winzip.

    So they have to be typed in just before the actual setup.exe is run or are they somehow saved for execution when called for?

    instead of just double ckicking on the setup.exe

    you would open up a run box ( Start -> Run)

    then put setup.exe /switch1 /switch2 /switch3 etc

    What is the switches that its saying you need to run?
