    First of all welcome to the go4expert forums and next thing is you putted the thread in the wrong area. You submited in the articles section and I moved it to the correct place i.e. queries and expert comments on MFC/Win32

    Also regarding your virtual CD in VC++ what you want to do I could not get.

    Did you want to create an application that will take the necessary file and create a ready to burn folder, or you mean an application of yours which is ready to run whenever CD is inserted in the drive. or you mean something like http://www.virtualcd-online.com/vcd/apps/download/demo.cfm?lg=0

    Thanks

    or probably you desire to develop something like a virtual cd drive, whcih can be used to save a copy of a cd on you hard drive and then when you run the application it will behave as if a cd is there in the cd drive. This sort of utility is usually used when you want to play a game ( or any other application for that matter ) which requires the original cd to be in your drive to be able to run it ... and obviously you don't have one ...

    Cheers,
    Amit Ray. :)

    This can be done for sure, I have seen a couple of utilities like this ... though I am not very sure about the details of implementation.

    Well, there are cracks of S/Ws which remove the CD check too, in that case S/Ws which generally require a CD to be run can be copied on to HD and run. This effectively achieves the same goal as the Virtual CD Softwares.

    yes this what i meant
    thank you amit
    but no one tell me till now if he have got any idea how can i implement something like this?


    Does i need to Implement a windows driver which will read from the hard Disk instead of the CD or there is an easier trick that makes the windows see a virtual CD-Rom Drive ?
