Added a note about films because I watched that Sintel short film created with Blender, which was in some areas even better than the work Pixar and Dreamworks are putting out commercially.

PassMark OSFMount v2.0.1001

billon on 22 Mar 2018
  • 6MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 22 Mar 2018
  • Suggested by Stone Tablet

OSFMount is a collection of virtual drive tools that allows mounting local disk image files as a drive letter, RAM disks and mounting CD or DVD images (for simplicity or speed). Supported image types include IMG, DD, ISO, BIN, NRG, SDI, AFF, AFM, AFD, VMDK (used by VMware), VHD (Virtual PC) and more.

The program is ideal for machines without a CD/DVD drive and, as most images are bit-for-bit copies of disk partitions, many programs will treat them as the real thing, enabling programs that require a program disc. For disk images, the program can give access to these files without booting or other required visualization software. RAM disks have a variety of uses including high speed caches, programs with frequent/intense disk reads/writes and some database applications.

Command line tools are also included.

Note: The developer warns: "it is recommended that 64-bit Windows is used when large disk image files are to be mounted."

@freakazoid: CDmage is ancient, I'm surprised someone even uses it anymore... :)

skall on 2015-02-23 10:21

whenever i try to mount an image (different formats), the message 'wrong parameter' appears and the new drive is not selectable? i am using the 64bit version and have admin rights.

any hints what might cause this?

i might be wrong, but it seems like this is the only up to date portable virtual cdrom software for win8.1?

Portable Reviewer on 2015-09-15 12:36

@Midas CDmage works like a charm unlike PassMark OSFMount despite "being ancient". Nothing ancient about it. PassMark OSFMount couldn't detect my image file properly as @freakazoid experienced. In fact very few free portable mount tools could handle my image file properly. I'm surprised you don't use CDmage to mount......

Gets worse with every update. Locks up and freezes half the time when trying to use emoticons.

Great app! I use this regularly for my language classes.

webfork on 2017-03-21 01:30

I'm having a lot of problems with this program on Win7x64. It won't minimize, it won't close unless you do an "End Task" in Task Manager, and it doesn't remember me between sessions. Anyone else having issues?

ChromeHistoryView v1.30 realeased 14-MAR-2017

Changelog: Version 1.30
   "Added new columns: 'Transition Type' and 'Transition Qualifiers'."
   "You can read about the meaning of these fields here and here."

Since the Readme.txt file "here and here" pointers lead to...never-never land,
(and the equivalent *.chm help file entry generates some obscure error message)
the following real pointers might perhaps be more helpful in clarifying the added fields gist :

Transition Types explained:

Transition Qualifiers explained:

(Thanks @billon who obligingly provided alternative pointers in the What's new entry...;-)

The instructions say:
"Run jcpicker.exe /ini and then close the program"
How do you Run that? In the folder there is an exe and an ini file, but not an exe /ini.

Midas on 2018-01-22 07:27

Type '[Windows key]+R', drag and drop 'jcpicker.exe' into the "Run" dialog, edit the the character string you just placed in the "Open" field, adding " /ini" at the end, click the "OK" button and presto... it's called a "Command Line Parameter".
