Installing Windows with .exe file

Hi

I am trying to install Windows via Bootcamp onto my Macbook Air but have a problem in that the Windows 7 install file I have is a .exe file (I subscribe to the Microsoft Action Pack and this is what was provided) and bootcamp appears to only work with an ISO image. Can anyone provide any advice on how I overcome this.

Many thanks

Ken

Download an official ISO from Digital River that matches your key and use your key with that.
