Windows 7: Windows USB/DVD Download Tool fails to install

Windows USB/DVD Download Tool fails to install

Any attempt to download and install this tool results in " This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Please install a program or, if one is installed, create an association in the Default Programs control panel."

I do not get this error with any other program I attempt to run, or download and install. I need to create a bootable usb drive or dvd to do a upgrade repair of my 7 installation. My original windows 7 DVD does not contain SP1. I have downloaded the SP1 iso and just need this too to work.

Thank you

Write the latest official ISO with SP1 to stick using Universal USB Installer with Windows 7 in dropdown menu, or to burn DVD use ImgBurn at 4x speed.

Thank you for the reply. I can find nothing in the troubleshooting that even comes close to my problem. When I first start the program, instead of getting a window or dialogue box asking for the source file and path, I siimply get the error that says it can't find the file. At no point do I get asked to input anything or provide the path or name of the iso file. I also do not get any request for additional installs. Lastly, if I understand what is supposed to happen, the program should appear in my Programs list and it does not. I would prefer to be badly embarrassed and have you point out the obvious step I have missed, since I can't find it. The only thing I see where I have not followed the steps in your link is that I did not purchase the file. I can't find anyway to do that in Microsoft Store.

My entire objective in this is to create a bootable windows 7 sp1 installation disk so I can do an upgrade/repair of my installation. I can't use my original DVD since my installations has already been patched to SP1.
