Windows 7: Virtual Clone Drive and Microsoft Office 2007

The Microsoft Office 2007 installer that I had access to was in an ISO file format. It meant that either I burn it on to a DVD or find an application that will allow me to mount the file as a virtual DVD. Microsoft used to have a virtual CD application for Windows XP. Sadly, said application doesn't work for Windows Vista or Windows 7. After looking at several options, I decided on Virtual Clone Drive. It installed fine and it seems to work well. I was able to mount the Microsoft Office 2007 installer and I was able to successfully install it on my Windows 7 system so in summary:
Virtual Clone Drive works
Microsoft Office 2007 works


  1. The ISO can also be opened by 7z or winRAR so no need to install a cd emulator.
