You can't. The process of installing a program consists of more than simply copying a single file.

I agree totally with ijack.

What is on an install CD is usually far from identical to what is on your computer system after install. When a CD is used to install a program this will create numerous essential registry entries and files on the computer. These can vary according to the particular computer. Just copying the files alone is insufficient, except for some very small stand alone utilities.

I believe the OP is referring to an ISO file (or similar image file).

If so, a program such as MagicISO, or UltraISO, or PowerISO, etc can be helpful. There are numerous image file formats, some of them proprietary. The OP's burning software may also be all that is required (by selecting "Burn from image file").

To reconstruct an installation disk you would still need the information outlined by Derek. No ISO burning application is going to do that for you. To burn an image you must first create the image.

If the poster just wants to know how to burn some ISO image to a CD then sure, most burning software has an image burning facility, including Nero.

A couple more freebies for the list:

ImgBurn

CdBurnerXP

After install it is a very easy process, just a button click.
