the simplest was of doing it without having to download any more software is to use windows' in-built cd burning feature.

here's a microsoft video which shows you how to use it.

you need to burn the same file that you downloaded - that's the installer program for MS Maths.

MS Math is pre-installed on this new PC. I can't locate the source folder.

it's preinstalled? that's unusual.

i wonder if we are talking about the same program.

when you run it, does it have a calculator looking thing on the left hand side?

if you want to burn a copy of the program for future use, then click here and download the x64 setup program. you don't need the other files.

once it's downloaded, follow the instructions detailed in the video i linked you to above to burn it onto a cd.

i'm really not sure why you need to save a copy of it on cd, but it's up to you...as it's freely available for download and most likely will be in the future too.

You mean Microsoft actually gives software away for free? Just kidding. Thanks MM
