PowerISO image file not autorunning

View Full Version : PowerISO image file not autorunning


13-08-2013, 09:00 AM

I've been in this forum before with my problem, and encouragement from learned members was an exhilarating experience! This time again I've come up with an issue that I myself cannot resolve even after exhaustive research on the internet.
The problem is that I successfully create an ISO image file from an autorun DVD/CD and expect this image file to behave like the original DVD/CD on mounting. But it doesn't happen. Why? When I click the virtual drive, it simply opens and shows all files included but doesn't run the executable file by itself like the original DVD/CD drive. Is there any solution of this problem, or should I simply adjust with the limitation of accessing the executable file only through double clicking that myself?
Thank you for your time and attention in advance!

Is poweriso registered??? Since, you cant make images bigger than 300 mb, if if its not registered. And is it the latest version?? 5.7?

Of course, it's registered! I am not talking about image size but quality of being autorun or not. Don't tell me about autorun.inf file etc! I've checked all that, but it still doesn't run on clicking the virtual drive.

And, yes, its version is 5.6, if not 5.7! :)

Do other ISO files Auto run, or is it only this ISO ?

Just a theory --- back in 2011 MS disabled autorun in XP for various devices ( this was a attempt to stop viruses in USB drives auto running) , CD/DVD's still run fine, what "may" be happening is XP is seeing the ISO other than a CD, thus cancelling the Auto run. :2cents:

Yes, this is what I've got so far after some research on the internet but you explained exactly the way a dimwit like me will understand very easily! So, now the question is, why does the virtual drive, say H:/, opens the folder and shows all files when I mount a(ny) image file but doesn't seem to run the program as the actual drive, say G:/, does? Is it possible to undo MS disabled autorun for virtual drive (PowerISO is the program, not Daemon Tools or any other)?

And, sorry I forgot to add that no ISO image file runs on click, even if created from a DVD/CD that normally runs when inserted in the G:/ drive.

The auto run being disabled by updates may or may not be the problem, I'll have a bit of a play around as well to see if I can replicate your problem.

But to enable the auto run again, if you go to http://support.microsoft.com/kb/967715 roughly halfway down that page is a couple of "fixits" one says it will enable auto run. It may or may not work.

want to extract).exe. Icon=Icon Name(name of the icon).ico

Okay got it sorted - Kind of :)

replicated your events to the letter. Two options that worked for me on XP.

In PowerISO- making sure it loads on startup. Lot of pissing about but it worked.

Right click the ISO,mount, go to My computer, right click the Virtual drive/ISO - select autoplay - ISO runs.

2nd Option- download and install Virtual clone drive http://www.slysoft.com/en/download.html its the bottom one ( free)
WARNING be careful when installing, it wants to install AVG and some other CRAP- look at each window READ and untick, don't install as required.

Once installed, reboot. Now all your ISO's will look like a sheep, to run the ISO - simply double click the ISO, and it will run as if it were a CD/DVD.

Something that I just discovered as well-- when double clicking a ISO PowerISO would only mount the ISO, autorun wouldn't work. BUT after installing Virtual Clone Drive, and changing the PowerISO back to the default, NOW double clicking the ISO the Auto run works.
Suggest you install Virtual Clone, reset the PowerISo as the default (Options/Configuration/general tab-iso), reboot and see if it works now.

Thermite is an incendiary reaction that can burn as hot as 2500°C or more. That means that if you lit a pound of thermite on top of your car it would melt through your hood, through your engine, through your driveway, and make a hole in the ground.
