How to mount and unmount ISO using Virtual CloneDrive

A lot of software is available as ISO files or IMG files and most folks would like to install this directly without having to go through the hassle of burning a DVD. This can be done by mounting the ISO file as a drive and installing from that drive.

Windows 7 and older Windows do not include the capability to mount a ISO file, but there are tools that offer this feature. The best I have found is Virtual CloneDrive. Download it, install it and any time you need to mount a ISO file, right-click it and choose Mount. When you are done and unmount it by clicking on the Virtual CloneDrive icon in the system tray.

Tried with: Virtual CloneDrive 5.4.6.0 and Windows 7 x64

  1. I am so frustrated! it’s not so easy for me. I downloaded virtual clone drive, but it doesn’t mount the iso. I click on the supposed “virutal CD” and it opens up and I can see all the files in there…instead of running and installing 😦

    I have Windows 7×64
