    With Dism++, you can enjoy a free and powerful tool that offers many utilities for your Windows system. It helps you to optimize, clean and manage your computer. One reason why Toplist likes Dism++ is because It has a feature that allows you to convert images easily, such as WIM, ESD and ISO.

    Here are 6 steps for using Dism++ to convert your ESD file to ISO:

    2. Run the suitable Dism++.exe file and click Accept on the installer setup window
    3. Click on the file menu at the top and select the ESD --> ISO option. Besides, you can navigate to the Toolkit > ESD To ISO.
    4. Click the first Browse button on the Format Conversion Wizard and select your ESD file.
    5. Click the second Browse button and choose a location for your ISO file. Then, enter a name for your ISO file. Once done, click the Save button.
    6. Finally, click Finish to start the conversion process. Please be patient as exporting the converted ISO file will take about 15 minutes.

    After the conversion process is finished, open the location or path you selected earlier to check the ISO file you exported. Now, you have the ISO file ready, check how to flash the ISO file into USB. If the DISM++ automatically encounters an error or hangs in the middle, it means that the ESD file you selected is corrupted. In this case, please download the ESD file again and repeat all the steps.

    ESD ToolKit

    ESD ToolKit is one of other handy ways to convert ESD files to ISO in Windows for free. However, unlike DISM++, which provides a GUI (graphical user interface), ESD ToolKit is a ESD decrypter that works on Command Prompt.

    Follow the steps below to convert ESD to ISO file using ESD ToolKit:

    1. Download file zip ESD Toolkit from
    2. Navigate to your Downloads folder. Unpack the ZIP file and double-click on the ESDISO.bat file.
    3. A Command Prompt will appear on your screen. Press the Enter key twice.
    4. Copy the full path of the ESD file. For example, the sample ESD file is in the Downloads folder, so the path will be "C:\Users\UserName\Downloads\FileName.esd".
    5. Paste the copied link next to ESDFiles [0]. Make sure that the copied link ends with your ESD file name, otherwise the conversion process will not run.
    6. Press Enter twice more. This command will follow your command and the toolkit will create the ISO file.

    When the process is finished, reopen the folder where you extracted ESD ToolKit. You will only find the extracted ISO file in that folder. Now, you might want to know how to edit ISO files on Windows to better control the exported ISO files. Although ESD ToolKit will do the task for you, in some cases it may get stuck in the conversion process. Don't worry, there is another tool called NTLite with some additional features.
