    Will Win8.1 mount an ISO or do I need third-party software


    I just bought Office 2013 from the Microsoft Store and downloaded it as an ISO. I plan to copy the ISO to the desktop and install from there. From what I've read, I should be able to mount the ISO and Windows will treat it like a DVD - but it is not clear if Windows 8.1 can mount the ISO or if I need to first get third-party software like Slysoft's VirtualCloneDrive.

    You're welcome. I've been using the mount option to install/upgrade Windows 10, so I can tell you it works great.
