Mounting ISO Files on Windows

Believe it or not, Microsoft does have a tool for mounting iso files on Windows (similar to Apple’s ability to do so with Disk Images). No need to burn the iso to access the file. The download is here. Note the UI is ugly and somewhat undocumented, but it’s not to hard to figure out. Open the program, load the driver, then mount your image file. It’s unsupported, but it works. Hope this helps others wondering how to do this. No need to buy anything fancy.
