I have downloaded an .iso image file of a program. Then I burned it to a CD-R disc. Tried to execute/install the program. Nothing happened. What did I do wrong?

There are a lot of possible causes, so we'll need the following information:
* What operating system do you have? (I'm assuming XP?)
* What program was it? (Include the version.)
* What was the source? (Name the website/server.)
* What program did you use to burn the CD?
* Did you verify the disk integrity after burning?

Let us know more.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Here are the answers to your questions:
XP;Adobe Photoshop Elements V 3.0; Limewire; Roxio (Classic Creator); Yes, I think so.

Major problem...

The fact that version 3.0 is old is usually an issue, but in this case it's not relavent. Adobe Photoshop Elements, the last time I checked, is a copyrighted program, and as such must be purchased from the author or an authorized distributer. Limewire is neither, and 'sharing' a copyrighted program is illegal. Because of that you'll find no help in getting the pirated program to work. (See the Cnet forum policies.)

What I can suggest, though, is downloading a free 30-day trial from Cnet's own download.com by clicking here, or a trial of version 4.0 directly from Adobe by clicking here. After the 30 days you may choose to purchase the program for $100.

Sounds like a good solution to me. Appreciate the response.
