The .iso may have gotten corrupted while you were downloading it. Did you download the .iso for "Home" under Free Download Bootable CD Now! towards the bottom.

Free download Magic Partition Manager Software, partition magic alternative, free partition magic, partition magic Windows 7 and server partition software - Partition Wizard Online

I think you may be downloading the wrong thing. When I clck on the Local Download link to the far right of that red arrow in that screenshot I posted above, it downloads a pwhe7.iso file and not a .rar file for me.

What do you get when you click on the link below for this?

I just finished resizeing second partition to allow larger C. Partition Wizard worked beautifully BUT I had to go to Windows menu - all programs - default programs - set default program - and then set image burner as the default.
After that a right click on the ISO file and the proper choice was there.

As a side note did clean install to go from 32 to 64 bit. There are a LOT of updates

Ah, sounds like you just have some ZIP program set to open ISO files.

See if using the free program ImgBurn to create the CD/DVD with the .iso file instead may work. Be sure to only use 4X or less burn speed though.

If it still does not work, then redownload the .iso file from Internet Explorer and not using any download manager type program incase the first one got corrupted somehow.

YA i used internetdownloadmanager for downloading.. And i have a burner software for this, but while browsing a file to a utility tool it should not say that its invalid file. After all setting it to rar/burner software will not change file type.!!!

Try downloading the .iso without using internetdownloadmanager.
