    I have recently switched to Surface Pro 3 (i5 / 256GB)and used to play Age of Empires 3 or even a older FPS like WWII CoD on my i5 laptop. I would love to continue playing these games on my Surface Pro 3.
    I have used No-CD patches before on my laptop after installing the games from CD but my first attempts installing it from ISO-files didn't work as it kept asking to insert the CD.
    What is the best / easiest way to achieve this?

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to the forum Stidly

    I would think if the problem is one of getting it installed, what you are trying should work but maybe someone else has another idea. You could set the CD/DVD drive on the laptop up as a share and install from there.

    Have you tried mounting the image on a virtual drive and installing it form there?

    You need some virtualization software like Daemon Tools. Use it to mount the ISO to a virtual drive.
