    Re: Virtual CD

    You mean mounting ISO images? I use Daemon Tools.

    Re: Virtual CD

    linux can natively mount cdrom images:
    Code:
    mount -t iso9660 -o loop /dir/image.iso /mnt
    you can then share to windows clients with samba

    There's converters for other formats too, eg bin2iso, nrg2iso, mdf2iso etc.

    DaemonTools has been rock solid for me. V3 install is MSI based so deployment is easy. DaemonScript lets you create scripts to mount the ISO, execute the app then dismount the ISO again.
