[Free] Virtual CDs..
It's the obvious scenario ISO image on some share, shortcut/something simple They[tm] can click on client, which mounts the image, preferably to a specified drive letter (command line option?) , runs an app from somewhere on the virtual CD, unmounts CD when app closes.
I've forgotten which one it was but I'm absolutely sure I saw one with a bunch of CLI options that would mount an ISO image to a given drive letter a couple of months ago.. but I've forgotten what is was and just can't find it now

With Daemon Script

Just started looking at the (older) 3.47 DT. Mount is easy, but I can't figure out how you get Daemon Script to run an app from the virtual CD?

I used a batch file , mount then run the exe.

Oops, didn't think of DT being able to tell you about the drive it's using. Meanwhile I just found BTEWin script stuff which claims to be able to change a DT device drive letter:
"Daemonletter device, drive letter : Changes the letter for the given virtual device if possible. Example : Daemonletter 0, X"
Haven't tried it yet, but I'd definitely like a fixed drive letter.

BTEWin did work. Need to go study the syntax now, but did a quick hack and easily got it to:
a) Mount an ISO
b) Change the drive letter to X:
c) Run X:\somepath\someapp.exe
d) Wait for someapp.exe to finish
e) Unmount the ISO
And you can compile it's *.BTE scripts to standalone EXEs i.e. don't have to deploy that as well as DT.
Sooo.. everyone uses the older DT 3.47 for this kind of thing or is the 4.x one safe now?
