Mounting an ISO in XP the Microsoft way

Recommended Posts

Yeah I know this is like 6 years old, but for those who never heard of this before...

 

http://download.microsoft.com/download/7/b...rolpanel_21.exe

 

The readme:

Readme for Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel v2.0.1.1

 

THIS TOOL IS UNSUPPORT BY MICROSOFT PRODUCT SUPPORT SERVICES

 

 

System Requirements

===================

- Windows XP Home or Windows XP Professional

 

Installation instructions

=========================

1. Copy VCdRom.sys to your %systemroot%\system32\drivers folder.

2. Execute VCdControlTool.exe

3. Click "Driver control"

4. If the "Install Driver" button is available, click it. Navigate to the %systemroot%\system32\drivers folder, select VCdRom.sys, and click Open.

5. Click "Start"

6. Click OK

7. Click "Add Drive" to add a drive to the drive list. Ensure that the drive added is not a local drive. If it is, continue to click "Add Drive" until an unused drive letter is available.

8. Select an unused drive letter from the drive list and click "Mount".

9. Navigate to the image file, select it, and click "OK". UNC naming conventions should not be used, however mapped network drives should be OK.

 

You may now use the drive letter as if it were a local CD-ROM device. When you are finished you may unmount, stop, and remove the driver from memory using the driver control.

Now, if somebody can say if this works... or not.

It seems very interesting and actually a lot less tedious than the external programs. I may just try it out since my trial for Alcohol 120% expired long ago. :peopleseybrow:
