I'm trying to install and run Fedora 25 on a Windows 7 computer. I download and install Fedora Media Writer but, when I try to run it, the following error appears, "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.". The message seems to come from the MS Visual C++ Runtime Library. Can anyone help with this issue?

@aeperezt How does this instructions helps if she/he actually does not have a media that contains Fedora yet (because Fedora Media Writer crashes)?

If the Fedora Media Writer crashes on your computer, use one of the alternatives. Get the ISO image from (*) and write it to your USB drive with Win32DiskImager which runs perfectly on Windows 7. You get Win32DiskImager here:
