Windows 7: Burning iso's in windows 7 professional?

Burning iso's in windows 7 professional?

How do I burn an iso file in windows 7? I thought that windows 7 was supposed to have native support for burning this type of file. There is no "burn disc image" option when right clicking on iso files.

Set Windows Disk Image Burner or your choice of burner in Control Panel>Default Programs.

I use ImgBurn, but Windows burner in Win7 is surprisingly stable.

Thank you! I did not have to do this in the RC, so I was thinking that they took the native image burning capabilities out. It's weird how typing "image burner" into the search in the start menu won't bring it up either. had me baffled.

Vista and now 7 in 32 and 64 bit.

There is a built in burner. Just right click the ISO and select the burn option.

The suggestion to make the Windows 7 burner the default burner for .iso files worked for me. Great tip. right clicking on the .iso file didn't bring up the burn option until I made that change.
