    Hey,
    I was recently trying to install a program that was packed as a mdf-image. It turned out that there are no mdf-mounting programs available that work with Windows 7 (build 7000). I think a lot of people have the same problem, so I decided to share my solution with you:

    Download PowerISO.
    Rename your image [filename].mdf to [filename].iso.
    Mount the iso-image with PowerISO.

    I agree it is a quick and dirty way of solving the problem, but since I believe there are no other solutions, this is the way to go ;)

    FIX: Daemon Tools for .MDF image mount in Windows 7

    Do this:

    1. Download latest SPDT drivers here: DuplexSecure - Downloads
    * Don't worry if it doesn't list Windows 7 as a supported platform, it still works
    * Reboot after install

    2. Install Daemon Tools Lite
    * That's it!

    Tried all kinds of software (Magic ISO, Power ISO, Ultra ISO, etc) before I found this fix.
