I keep having to look for this tool and it’s getting harder to find in the file jungle of Microsoft

Microsoft released a tool called the Win XP Virtual CD Control Panel. It’s cool because it DOES NOT NEED A REBOOT AND HAS NO SPYWARE AND DOES NOT "PHONE HOME" – and it’s 60kb. Ideal for prod servers :).

When was the last time you got a useful tool that was smaller than Notepad (at 166kb, it’s a bit big, eh!)

Anyway, pull it down here.

Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel for Windows XP

32 bit only, sorry. Still, everyone’s got one of those kicking around somewhere šŸ™‚



About Brad Saide

I'm a SharePoint consultant. I'm also slowly going bald, seem to have a permanent spare tyre around my waist and enjoy socialising with friends over a beer or 10. The last 2 may possibly be related. Started working with SharePoint when the first version was in limited beta release (participated in the Technology Adoption Program while at Woolworths) and have been committed to the adoption of the technology as a business enabler ever since.
