Open an ISO file in Windows Vista


Some programs come in .ISO files, which you need to burn to a CD or DVD and then read. There are several tools out there that trick Windows into thinking that a .ISO file (or another disk image file type, like .BIN or .CCD) is a physical disk so you can skip the step of burning it. The only one I know of that works with Vista at this time is Virtual ConeDrive. It’s free, and it works perfectly. Thanks, SlySoft.

If you have a tool you like more, add a comment.

    Or… you can use WINRAR which also can open ISO files among a bunch of other formats…

    Unfortunately Virtual ConeDrive doesn’t want to install on the 64 bit version of Vista.
    It probably uses a device driver and doesn’t have a 64 bit driver included.

    unfortunatly when you click on the link it takes you through and apparently you only get virtual clone drive for free for 21 days then you have to purchase a product key. no thanks

    7zip is the best, I guess. And it’s freeware/opensource. Recommend for everyone.
