I went on microsoft.com today and downloaded the student discount version of Windows 7 Professional because I am a student. I got it from their store that they linked me to called digitalriver.com. I paid for the software and then got two options to download it with, a .exe and a .iso. I am using parallels to put windows 7 on my mac, so you can use disk images. My problem is that when I click on the download .iso, it downloads on my mac as a -ISO.exe and when I open it, its all this text encoding in the TextEdit app. I really need help on what to do next so I can open it in parallels as a disk image (so it has to be a .iso in order for it to open). Any solutions?
