Any way to mount .img files?

I need to mount an .img file downloaded from It includes some software I’m installing on some servers through a scripted process. I have scripted downloading the file, but can’t seem to figure out how to mount it. Mount-DiskImage doesn’t seem to work with .img files.


The file I’m working with is available here: … x?id=35489

Are you able to use third Party applications? I use SlySoft’s Virutal Clone Drive {freeware}

You can then use VCDMount.exe to mount and unmount the .img file.
PS C:\Program Files (x86)\Elaborate Bytes\VirtualCloneDrive> .\VCDMount.exe \ghost01\IMAGES\ISO\BartPE-EETech.iso

I’ve used it previously but I’m only mounting ISOs, but it fully supports IMGs

Here is a forum post that talks about more options if you use multiple virtual drives

Actually, I got it by calling explorer.exe with the .img file.
Start-Process -FilePath $env:systemroot\explorer.exe -ArgumentList "$TargetFolder\wacserver.img"
That mounts it and spawns an explorer window. But once the program is installed, I dismount the image, which closes the explorer window.
