There are a few choices...

a) You can mount the iso file in a virtual DVD drive on the server where you want to run the install

b) You can install a virtual DVD drive on the server wher you keep all your software, mount the iso, then copy the contents to a separate folder. You can then use this folder when you want to run an install.

A tool I often use is Pismo http://www.pismotechnic.com/pfm/ap/. With this, you can right-click an iso file and select Quick Mount and you are browsing it like any other folder.

If you have a Win 8 / Win 2012 server handy, this has built-in facilities for browsing iso files.

Thank you SSCrazy, but that is not quite what I am looking for.

In the past, I have purchase software licenses, downloaded the ISO file, and burned the image to a disc. When I did this in the past, the resulting files and folders on the burnt disc looked exactly like the files and folders on the disc from a retail version of the same software.

When I burn this ISO image, it looks like one file with an ISO extension. The file on the disc is a zipped file which cannot be used unless it is unzipped.

Now, I have unzipped the file unto a hard drive and installed the software from there. However, I do not want to unzip the file unto the hard drive for each computer. I want it on a disc which I can take from computer to computer.

Unfortunately, the unzipped ISO is close to 7 gig. A DVD is 4.7. More importantly, the resulting files and folders do not look exactly like a retail disc.

I am working with the vendor from whom I purchased the licenses and downloaded the image. I have also tried to work with Microsoft.

Thanks to all, in advance.

sincerely,
EdVassie

The unzipped version should look like the screenshot below. We normally just copy the media over the network to whatever server we want to run the install on.
