How to install Visual Studio 2008 (Free-Trial)

How to install visual studio 2008 (Free-trial)? The Visual Studio 2008 file I downloaded into my computer is in .img format and I am unable to find a program to recognize that file. May anyone of you please help me? I want to use it for learning and practicing on programming.

Thank You!

Answer 1

You need to burn a DVD from the image file, then install  from the DVD.

Of course, this requires a DVD-writing drive.  The software that came with the drive or computer (usually Nero) will handle the image files.

The instructions for installation are on the MSDN download page here:

Answer 2

Use DAEMON

 tools to read your img file.

It is free, and you don't need to burn the img file into DVD.

Answer 3

Tony's solution is one of the easiest (in the long run) as apps like Daemon Tools give you a virtual CD/DVD drive that you can use to mount an existing ISO/IMG file with and treat like a readonly CD/DVD... all without having to burn a copy.

 

Answer 4

Is there no easy way to do this, seems bizarre that after downloading for four hours I then have to create a DVD etc?
