reading ISO files - MSFT own app fails in Vista
I have several ISO files on my PC, when using WinXP .. I downloaded a
free utility written by MSFT called Virtual cdrom utility to load up the
ISO files and display files.. from the site below
http://download.microsoft.com/downlo...olpanel_21.exe

needless to say this application fails under Vista... does MSFT have an
update.. ? or how do I load an ISO file so I can access the files it
contains.. or does a 3rd party vista app exist to read this

thanks
kevin

I use Daemon Tools to mount ISO files, then browse them in Explorer.

Alcohol 52% works: http://trial.alcohol-soft.com/en/ (I'm using the
crippled, free version). What gets me, is that Vista doesn't have the
capability to mount ISOs built in, but Microsoft's Virtual PC does. Why
haven't they included this capability into Vista? I don't want anything
fancy: just the ability to mount and use an ISO file like a CD/DVD (after
all, Microsoft's TechNet downloads all come as ISOs). In most cases, I have
no need (or desire) to burn the CD/DVD. I just need to mount it.
