After installing Vista this weekend I started searching for a good tool for mounting ISO images. This is actually one of the few head-scratching moment I’ve had with Vista so far – why didn’t they bake this in?

I tried several that either didn’t install, didn’t work, or were in some way flaky. Finally I found a post from Arian Kulp on Virtual CloneDrive from Elby.

Virtual CloneDrive is a free utility to mount ISO images on Windows (including Vista). One thing I really liked was that it associates itself with the ISO images so you can simply right-click on a .ISO file and mount it directly.
