Thread: A Newbie's Nightmare Pt. I

  1. #1
    Dear Seasoned Professionals (or any who care to help out..),

    I'm new at all this and I'm having a couple of problems (which I'm sure won't seem like much to you all). Anyway, here goes:

    I've downloaded a program and it's sitting in my shared folder, but I cannot open it because the program has an ".ISO" abbreviation and I get an error message that "such and such a program cannot open the file." Which program can
    i use to open this? I know how to change the program that opens it, but I don't know which one to use! If this makes any sense at all, please comment. If not, let this newbie stew.

    Second question: I've downloaded a program (haven't been able to use it yet, however...see the first question above) went to the store and bought the same thing for a friend (so that she could have the serial). I first wanted to buy one in the box, but the dealer suggested one without a box because it was forty dollars cheaper. I asked him about the serials and he said I didn't need them. He also said the disk would only work once. Is this a demo copy? Is there something on the disk which might prevent me from burning a copy? What's goin' on?

    Any help would be very sweet of you.

    First question: Look at the pinned topic in the software section.

    Second question: Depending on what program it was, he probably ripped you off.

    Uh....DuH! Thanks Xilo! (How embarrassing.) Next time I'll look before blindly leaping!

    In regards to ripping me off, I'm not sure. It was at a bloody radio shack. Can one sell demo copies of N SystemWorks '03? Would I be safe to make a copy for my computer?

    Anyway, thanks for pointing out the obvious....gawd.

    I am no rocket scientist ... but a good program for opening .iso files is the excellent and relatively inexpensive (at least on k-lite) WinISO. (lol)

    As far as buying software without a box ... it just depends .. but since I have never done it I can't really comment.

    Anyways good luck.
