    unable to mount iso file as i cant change its properties


    I am trying to mount a iso file but the mount option does not show up. So I try to change the properties of the file such that it opens with windows explorer. but I am unable to change the properties because I cant find the windows explorer option anywhere to choose. How to browse to windows explorer and choose it such that I get mount option. I am on a windows 2008 server.

    I don't know about Windows 2008 Server, however Windows prior to Win8 did not have the built-in ability to mount an ISO.
    Try "Virtual CloneDrive" by Slysoft. It's a great product and it's free. SlySoft Virtual CloneDrive

    Use ImDisk like a pro. It's a filesystem driver which does a lot more than just mount ISOs,
