Pay attention if you install with the setup file! Screenshots
Recommendation: Extract the setup file with e.g. 7-Zip to a folder, create a link to ImgBurn.exe within the Start Menu or on your Desktop instead of installing with the setup file. Portable: Copy and paste the newly created ImgBurn folder onto your flash drive or simply copy and paste the folder from Program Files if you used the installer. For portable usage you need also the file ImgBurn.ini which you can download here.
If you need another language than English, download it (if available), create a new folder within the ImgBurn folder, name it Languages and extract the downloaded language file into this folder.
