Description

Windows 8 finally has the feature to mount ISO image directly by double clicking on the image file in the file explorer. This is a guide on the process.

  • Open a command prompt.
  • Setting sparse flag to 0 will set the file to NOT sparse and then you can mount it:
    fsutil sparse setflag imageFile.iso 0
    
  • This will query the flag:
    fsutil sparse queryflag imageFile.iso
