Mounting ISO Images with Vista

November 21, 2006

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.
