Virtual Disk DriveWindows 10 can mount disks to a virtual drive. If you have Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 then you will need a virtual drive program like WinCDEmu or Alcohol 52% to mount downloaded disks.We do not recommend Daemon Tools Lite. If you use Daemon Tools Lite do not update this specific version if the old version runs on your computer.Mini-imagesMini-images are used for BfME 2 v1.06 and RotWK 2.01. If you wish to play these version you will need to mount a mini-image to a virtual disk drive. Firstly, you will need a program to mount a virutal disk (WindCDEmu or Alcohol 52%). After installing please restart your computer. Next you will need one of these mini-images.
