    Shawn, I'm having a problem with option one, step 2......

    Unblocked download as usual, I am an administrator, etc. Did the normal MERGE of .reg to registry.

    Here's what I get:
    The hex string in the .reg file is missing in registry. I get OPEN, not MOUNT in Explorer. I can mount it thru file explorer, but no MOUNT cmd.

    Hello Dick, :)

    It looks like you have 7-Zip set as the default program for ISO files, and would be why you no longer have Mount.

    You can download and merge the .reg file for the listed iso option in the tutorial below to restore the default associations of ISO files to fix this.
