    Magic ISO doesent worked with my 64 bit. while rebooting i was getting warning message when i checked up with Vista beta 2.  I was afraid to test someting with RC1.

  2. Here’s an ISO Mounter from Alex Feinman that was recommended from TechNet.

    I used Virtual CD (You have to run it "as Administrator") on Vista RC2 and it works.

    Thanks,

    I found that the virtual cd/dvd driver from the MagicIso folks made my machine unstable. I do have the full MagicIso product and love it, but I stick with VirtualCloneDrive for mounting ISOs. (I would love to use the one from MagicIso as it does UIF files.)
