PA 2009 ISO Image mounting



  • The context menu should allow you to mount direct to an existing virtual drive not go through the wizard.

    try mounting and unmounting several images, an awful lot more needs to be done to make this user friendly.

    why not allow creation of a number of virtual drives rather than creating and removing them continuously

    suggested mount options e.g.

    • to existing virtual drive
    • to new virtual drive

    suggested unmount options e.g

    • unmount this image
    • unmount all images
    • unmount from drive x

    looking forward to the next update

    context menu of PA Starter?



  • i meant the context menu when right clicking on an image file (e.g. iso) within windows explorer.

    browse to an iso then right click and mount image on the virtual dvd drive is what i’m after not running through a wizard.

    adding the mount image option from the configuration of pa only passes the file path to the mount image wizard doesn’t actually do the mounting.

    well it spares you from going to PA, running wizard and manually finding the ISO.

    You want it to simply mount the iso without any user interaction?



  • yes exactly right click and mount to drive X so to speak.

    currently if you mount ten images in a row and after lots of clicking and drive installations you then have ten additional drives and would then have to manually run the wizard ten time to remove all the drives.

    i would prefer a configurable number of virtual drives installed and have a right click mount to X that would automatically unmount anything that was currently mounted.

    I was just adding to the wishlist and hoping the functionality might become more like daemon tools with the awxDTools shell extension installed whilst pa is still in beta.

    The image mounting was the main reason i upgraded to pro so i could have two less programs installed but at the moment it’s not really in a user friendly state.

    So here’s hoping to the next refresh might have some tweaks 🙂

    it is major work though, so dont expect it in 11.00… however it is one of the areas that we will be improving for next releases… thanks

    we might be able to do some changes in 11.00 that will make it a LOT easier… stay tuned…


  • conexware

    with beta 4, you can set maximum number of VD’s, and it will always remount when limit is reached.

    That will definely help in 95% of situations until we put more features into PA Starter.



  • workin a treat, now if we can just not display the wizard getting rid of the two clicks needed to close it we’ll be away.
