    file to burn


    I have a file for MS Office Home and Student 2010 which I copied to my docs. It is blue but I ned to paste it in the address bar before it does anything. it says, save, save as or run.
    I want to burn it to a disc.
    It begins with HTTP and ends in .exe. I don't know if it should be a cd or dvd.
    How do I do this? I have a burner but am not sure how to go about this so I can install Office with the disc.
    Maybe the attachment will help to choose which i should use.
    Thank you

    Provide the full path / name of the file please.

    If it begins with http:// then it's a URL address. If it ends in .exe then it's probably a link to a file on the internet somewhere. If you paste that into your web browser, select Save as and save it on your computer somewhere that you can find it. Then you can burn that to a CD.

    File


    It is X17-75161 and blue -I think it an executable on my desktop I downloaded. I tried to give you a prntscrn but it won't upload.
    I am asking which of the Ashampoo choices I should use to burn it?????

    Sorry I cannot pate the path nor can I paste the file on desktop. As I said I can not produce a prnt screen either.

    Can you look at Ashampoo and see which of the choices I should use to burn the .exe file?

    I saved it to desktop and it is a bluish icon with the numbers X17-75161 and properties say .exe.
    **The question is, looking at Ashampoo, which selction should I use to burn it to dvd??

    I found a link here: Microsoft Office 2010 won't install - Microsoft Community

    Is that the one you used?

    You can burn the X17-75161.exe file (942MB) to a DVD or copy it to a flash drive as it won't fit on a CD.
    Better would be to use 7-ZIP to extract all the files in the .exe to a folder on your hard drive. Then burn the contents of that folder to a DVD, 1.8GB.

    To install from the DVD just open it and click on setup.exe.

    All is right so far. What I need to know is please look at the Ashampoo burner and let me know which choice I should use to burn this.
    Thank you

    burn another disc


    R.

    Yesterday I used the top choice in Ashampoo >files, folders to burn the Office file -fine.

    It got me thinking about the file you sent me for the Win 8.1 iso.

    I burned the Win 8.1 using the choice shown in the snip enclosed.

    Would that do the job or should I redo it with files, folders like yesterday?

    Please refer to the full Ashampoo for reference or I can send you another.

    If I need to burn it again could you please resend the Win 8.1 as I am having trouble locating it.

    Thank you
