    Virtual CD-ROM

    We have XP workstations and I use daemon tools v3.47 to mount .iso images. It's an old version but it works with daemon script.

    This version wont work with windows 7 and I've read that the newer version, daemon tools lite, is loaded with adware etc. I've found some freeware virtual cd drive tools but none of them work with daemon script.

    What do you guys use, if anything, to mount a .iso image to a virtual drive and then run an application?

    I run Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit and the latest version of Daemon Tools lite with no problems. During the install of daemon tool lite, you have to deselect all the default options (aka the adware options) and just install the tool itself.

    Slysoft Virtual CloneDrive

    Not sure if it works with daemon script, but a small clean app that works on servers and win7 to mount isos

    I'm aware of MagicDisc which I havn't personally used, but the presenter in the CBT Nugget I was watching seemed to love.

    I normally use Virtual Clone Drive or Pismo File Mount. The latter has a command-line interface which makes it super easy to mount ISOs using scripts. e.g.

    Code:
    :: Mount ISO
    pfm mount -m X -a -r -i D:\Software.iso
    
    :: Run program from X: drive
    
    :: Unmount ISO
    pfm unmount D:\Software.iso
