The Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool allows you to create a copy of your Windows 7 ISO file on a USB flash drive or a DVD. To create a bootable DVD or USB flash drive, download the ISO file and then run the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool. Once this is done, you can install Windows 7 directly from the USB flash drive or DVD.

The ISO file contains all the Windows 7 installation files combined into a single uncompressed file. When you download the ISO file, you need to copy it to some medium in order to install Windows 7. This tool allows you to create a copy of the ISO file to a USB flash drive or a DVD. To install Windows 7 from your USB flash drive or DVD, all you need to do is insert the USB flash drive into your USB port or insert your DVD into your DVD drive and run Setup.exe from the root folder on the drive.

Note: You cannot install Windows 7 from the ISO file until you copy it to a USB flash drive or DVD with the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool and install from there.

The copy of the ISO file that the Windows 7 USB/DVD Download tool creates is bootable. Bootable media allows you to install Windows 7 without having to first run an existing operating system on your machine. If you change the boot order of drives in your computer's BIOS, you can run the Windows 7 installation directly from your USB flash drive or DVD when you turn on your computer. Please see the documentation for your computer for information on how to change the BIOS boot order of drives.

To install Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

C:\> choco install wudt

To upgrade Windows 7 USB/DVD Download Tool, run the following command from the command line or from PowerShell:

      .SYNOPSIS
    
      Create a .ignore file for a package binary.
    
      .DESCRIPTION
    
      Chocolatey automatically creates a "shim" in a special folder, on your
      machine's PATH, for any executables found in the package's installation
      directory. This is helpful when installing ZIP packages or any kind of
      command line tools.
    
      Chocolatey can be instructed to ignore a particular binary by creating a file
      at the same path with the same name as the binary to ignore, except ending
      with the file extension ".ignore".
    
      This function creates that file, given the binary's path.
    
      .PARAMETER Path
    
      The path of the binary to ignore.
    
      This parameter also accepts multiple paths or pipeline input.
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-IgnoreBin -Path "foo.exe"
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-IgnoreBin -Path $foo, $bar
    
      .EXAMPLE

      .SYNOPSIS
    
      Create a .gui file for a package binary.
    
      .DESCRIPTION
    
      Chocolatey automatically creates a "shim" in a special folder, on your
      machine's PATH, for any executables found in the package's installation
      directory. This is helpful when installing ZIP packages or any kind of
      command line tools.
    
      Chocolatey can be instructed to treat a particular binary as a GUI application,
      meaning it will START the binary in a separate process and not block the
      console, by creating a file at the same path with the same name as the binary,
      except ending with the file extension ".gui".
    
      This function creates that file, given the binary's path.
    
      .PARAMETER Path
    
      The path of the binary to treat as a GUI application.
    
      This parameter also accepts multiple paths or pipeline input.
    
      .EXAMPLE
    
      Install-GuiBin -Path "foo.exe"
    
      .EXAMPLE
