Adding existing Windows games that need a CD mounted

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Is there an easy way to mount an ISO before playing a Windows game?

I'm currently the "Additional Apps" feature to run a *.bat file which calls a powershell script to mount the ISO before the game starts, then run a separate .bat file to call another powershell script to dismount the ISO upon the game's exit. (This is because apparently you can't mount or dismount an ISO from within a .bat file)

So I do have the workaround, but it requires 4 files, each containing a custom path, plus the iso file itself, so it's very clunky. Is there an easier way to do this from within Launchbox?

I'd love to know this too! I'm trying to do the same thing but didn't know about the powershell script thing...I need to look in to this. I wish there was an easy way to do this from within Launch Box though. I've tried using WinCDEmu Portable but it doesn't look like it runs from a command prompt.
