  • VCDROM +w7-x64 = :(

    One of my favourite tools is the VirtualCDROM tool that i think is a microsoft released tool.
    anywya - you add vcdrom.sys, load it as a driver, and then you can map ISO files.

    Anywya, I've got an iso that I need to test, and I tried to use this tonight.
    First effort came up with :Cannot open SCM Access Denied:

    THat tells me i need to run as administrator, right oh, easy.
    run as administrator, we get further, it'll actually let me import the driver,.
    however, when i click 'start driver' it tells me "unable to load this driver"

    SO i thought,I'll turn off driver signing (http://www.killertechtips.com/2009/0...ing-windows-7/)
    Done that, rebooted, same issue.

    so i can't lod the driver, I can;t use the application

    anyone have any thoughts or ideas ?

    in hindsight, it looks like vcdrom.sys is not x64 compatible, so i might need to find another variant.
    MagicISO will do the job. It's a much bigger app that I would have hoped, but it'll do the job

      I use Virtual Clone Drive which works reasonably well on both XP and Win 7 (64 bit)

        I will echo that. It is also the best price.

        Freebie!

          Haven't tried it on x64 but Daemon Tools works fine on x86. I understand why a lot of people won't use it these days though after some of their more dubious practices in the past.

            What about running it in XP mode (or whatever it's called)?

              XP Mode only works if the CPU is VT capable, unfortunately.
              1 1 was a racehorse.
              2 2 was 1 2.
              1 1 1 1 race 1 day,

                yeah,
                wasn't the installer riddled with spyware at some point? or IIRC hidden installs without authorization?

                  That was my impression too. I've never used or recommended Deamon Tools ever since, and even if they are clean now, I don't care. There are better tools out there.

                  I use Gizmo Central:

                  or MagicISO Virtual CD/DVD-ROM:
