TechSoup encourages you to download the installation software for your Microsoft Software Donation Program donations instead of having discs sent to you.

So you download the software from Microsoft's Volume Licensing Service Center (VLSC) and find out that it arrives as an ISO file and you need to perform additional steps before you can use that file for installation. What’s an ISO file? Most simply put, it’s a single file containing all the data from a CD, DVD, or other disc, all in one.

Fortunately, it is not so difficult to work with ISO files. This article explains what you need to do. The article also helps you decide whether you need additional software or memory devices and provides links to lists of free software to help you manage them.
