How to install the software using ISO (CD/DVD images) files?

You can download the licensed installation files on https://software.cc.metu.edu.tr within the campus borders. Some files can be accessed as CD/DVD images (ISO files) because of the technical requirements and ease of use.
These image files can be written into CD/DVD (using software such as Nero, Imgburn (free)) and they can be used directly through CD/DVD.

Suggested Practical Way: 7-zip

The suggested and practical way is to download and install 1 MB sized 7-zip software from https://www.7-zip.org/  or from https://software.cc.metu.edu.tr and extract the content by right clicking the downloaded ISO file. The software can be installed by running setup.exe in the newly created folder.


Daemon Tools is a software that is used to run the CD/DVD images of different folder systems (such as ISO, NRG, CUE) as virtual CD/DVD in Windows Operating Systems. In this way, it is no longer a must to write ISO files into CD/DVD or to keep the file in the same way it is extracted. This way is recommended to users who use ISO files frequently.

The software can be accessed from https://software.cc.metu.edu.tr.  It is recommended to download latest version from https://www.daemon-tools.cc/eng/products/dtLite/.
