Since version 3 is AnyBurn as well ISO editor and unarchiver :)

DzejPy on 2016-03-06 12:29

Sorry, the correct version number AnyBurn with the ISO editor is 3.1
Works well. And it's the only free ISO editor (that i know).

Thanks DzejPy. The interface seems clunky, but if it allows modifying bootable ISOs, it could be a winner! I've been looking for a suitable replacement for ImgBurn ever since they added OpenCandy bundleware. This might be it!

WinToFlash Lite v1.12.0000 Updated

billon on 10 Oct 2017
  • 44MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 10 Oct 2017
  • Suggested by guinness

WinToFlash easily transfers your Windows XP - 10 setup CD, DVD, or ISO image to a USB device. Although possible via other means, this solves the problem of annoying command-line arguments when reinstalling Windows on a device without an optical drive.

Additionally, as some flash devices have faster read times than optical drives, this can result in a faster Windows setup.

Wintoflash has just reached v1.0 -- Pro version is payware, but Lite/Home is still free (changelog is at http://wintoflash.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=35696).

YUMI v2.0.5.0 Updated

billon on 27 Sep 2017
  • 2MB (uncompressed)
  • Released on 26 Sep 2017
  • Suggested by webfork

YUMI (Your Universal Multiboot Installer) can be used to create a multi-boot USB flash drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools and more. Aside from a few distributions, all files are stored within the Multiboot folder, making for a nicely organized Multiboot Drive that can still be used for other storage purposes. YUMI uses syslinux to boot extracted distributions stored on the USB device and reverts to using grub to Boot Multiple ISO files from USB, if necessary.

YUMI works much like Universal USB Installer, except it can be used to install more than one distribution to run from your USB. Distributions can also be uninstalled.

Note: YUMI v2.x can't remove distributions previously installed with Legacy YUMI! Although no longer supported, you can still Download Legacy YUMI.

To disable 'Start Screen' go to "Settings"-"Advanced" and uncheck "Show 'Start Screen' when Bandizip starts".
To revert to the old tool-bar go to "View"-"Toolbar" and select "Old".

Two caveats: The directory path where the tool is installed to may not contain spaces (or you'll end up with a "mount failed" when VCDControlTool tries to actually mount an ISO). And 2nd, using the tool with Vista will work as admin only and you'll see the freshly mounted drive only from within an admin CMD.EXE command line (or from within VCDControlTool.exe's built-in file browser), but not from Vista's Windows Explorer.
-Anyone else with a 1) portable, 2) free and 3) Vista/Win7 compatible ISO-mounting utility?

bitbuerster: Any external file system on Windows must be part of Installable File System chain in order to be visible as a drive, thus by design it must be installed -> cannot be portable.

Even this method here "installs", but uses a pre-loaded driver to fool the system. Functionality of any alternative program would be the same, as it would have to access the same driver in the same fashion.

@bitbuerster, this is the best you can get for windows xp, other wise i'd go looking into how to write portable launchers, and uninstall/install drivers etc
