How To: Download and install an Esri software ISO file
An ISO file or image acts as a virtual copy of the installation DVD. ISO files for the latest versions of Esri software are available for download from the Downloads page in My Esri (my.esri.com).
After the ISO file is downloaded, it can be used as a virtual disk via an ISO image file extractor program (such as 7-Zip or IsoBuster) or an ISO mounter program (such as Virtual CloneDrive).
A physical backup copy of the software can be created using a DVD authoring program and DVD burner to burn the ISO file.
