Use 7Zip to extract the ISO to your hard drive, into a separate folder for it.
Then run the Setup.exe or.msi

If you put it on a USB stick that is bootable and boot your computer from that stick you won't be able to install it. Windows needs to be running to install Office.

That ISO is just a way to compress all the files into one smaller file for downloading and moving around.

u can use a program installed on the machine (poweriso, ultraiso etc....) with no disc drive and mount it through the USB drive (copy it on to it) or share and mount it across your network.

I would think so as the file is still there, if it works it probably be slower.

So just running iso is the way? OK i get that. If I wanted to put it on usb so it would auto run the install like it would from the dvd, how would I do that?

In that case you would need to extract the ISO (with 7-zip or any other ISO-aware program of your choice)
and copy the content into the root folder of the stick.
For the final installation you open the appr. drive letter and either run the autostart.exe or the setup.exe. (autorun will most likely be disabled on the target computer

into the root folder? Is that just on the stick? Or is there a special way to do that? Also what is a good free .ISO software?

Hi there
Forget UltraISO

Alcohol 52% Free edition is FREE and is much better for mounting virtual ISO's (DVD/CD/BLU RAY or even NERO NRG images) and is 100% FREE.

Download it here

Alcohol 52% Free Edition

Then you just mount the ISO you've got on your USB stick to the virtual drive you've set up with alcohol 52%

I use this all the time to mount DVD movie ISO's on a Netbook computer so I can watch the movies --without having a DVD drive either.

Cheers
