You have access to download files for products in two places on the website. All downloads are readily accessible in Downloads in your account on the right side of the website. You may also download directly from your receipt which you access from your account in History.
An ISO file is an archive file of an optical disc composed of the data contents of every written sector of an optical disc, including the file system. The files usually have the extension '.iso' or '.ISO'.
Software distributed on bootable discs is often available for download in ISO image format and like any other ISO image they may be written or 'burned' to a CD or DVD with any capable software.
Another option is to use a virtual drive to mount the ISO image on your computer. Using a virtual drive program is faster and more convenient than making DVDs from ISO files.
We recommend using Virtual CloneDrive (freeware) from elby.com or redfox.bz to mount the ISO file and then run the installer program. Virtual CloneDrive supports up to 8 virtual drives at the same time.

The website contains all of your purchasing information under History in your account at software.utah.edu. Click on History and locate the purchase (you may search all your purchases at once or narrow the search by various criteria). You will find the upgrade protection dates on the web receipt for that purchase.
