All Driver Files IN Drivers Folder Are Missing

By ManyTitles ·
Hi All,
I've downloaded a free program from Cnet called Mount ISO Files Virtually and tried to install it on my laptop running Windows 8. The instructions said to copy the driver file to the drivers folder in WINDOWS/SYSTEM32. Then I was supposed to run the Mount ISO Files Virtually executable file which will prompt me to browse to the drivers folder where I had previously pasted a copy of the needed driver file. To my surprise when I browse to the drivers folder from within the popup box generated by Mount ISO Files, I was not able to see any driver files. I tried taking ownership of both the system32 and drivers folder but it didn't help, I still was not able to see any driver files. Please help if you can, thanks.

Wrong OS

From the details on the CNET page, the "Mount ISO Files Virtually" is a Microsoft add-on (Power Toy) written for Windows XP that also worked on Windows Vista.

I have my doubts about the software working with Windows 8.

It does look like you don't need any extra software to mount an ISO image in Windows 8.
