When I download an MSI file from download.microsoft.com what do I do with the file in order to make use of it? If it was an EXE file I would doubble click on the file, thereby launching it. The program would do the task of setting up the software on the PC. What do I do with the MSI file?
Same way, sometimes you cant run the msi, it needs to be the .exe that runs, but if you just downloaded the msi, well then thats ok, just run it
