    I am sorry to be so dense and pestering but I don't get the .exe and the iso file difference regarding installation..
    This is what I see but it seems to be another exe file not iso.

    "English 64-bit (x64):X16-31970.exeBrazilian Portuguese 32-bit (x86): X16-31999.exe
    Note: Contains Office Home and Student 2010"

    I had another link MS gave me which worked when I just ran the link. I am having trouble understanding if what I am doing is actually installing Office or just allowing me to run it off the dvd.


    I have my functional .exe link burned and need to know if it only runs off the dvd or is actually installed.

    The file above is what MS just sent and is .exe.
    Will downloading an exe file and burning it to a dvd actually install Office or just run off the dvd while the dvd is in the machine?
    I realize this is a pain but I do appreciate your support. I am trying to be as clear as I possibly can.

    Hey Peter,

    You could just run the .exe file from your desktop to install office.

    Great news.!!!
    I used the exe file which I always use to install Office from the link itself. But this time I download to desktop and then burned it. After I inserted it, it hummed for 2 minutes then opened with a selection; repair, use 25 characters, remove, etc.
    I went no further as Office is running well.

    I will be refreshing and wanted a disc to count on.

    **The whole issue was that I did not know an exe file could be burned to install a program ; I thought it was only an iso that could do it.

    Both of you were very patient and I am greatly appreciative for what you did. Thank you very, very much.

    Peter
    P.S. I would like you both to know I researched as much as I could on my own before I came to the forum for help.
