    How to run a CD-based game from an ISO image?


    I have version 1 of Age of Empires which I enjoy playing from time to time. Part of the game is installed on my Win10 PC, but it still requires the CD to be in the PC's optical drive. I run the game by clicking on the games icon in my start menu. Is there a way to get the game to access the ISO image I created of the disc (in WinISO) instead of accessing the physical CD in the drive? I've reached out to WinISO, but thought I'd check here for tips on any solutions that might be built into Win10. Thanks.

    :)

    Need ISO maker

    Um, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't UDF the DVD format?

    "The name ISO is taken from the ISO 9660 file system used with CD-ROM media, but an ISO image might also contain a UDF file system."

    How to make boot cd without bootable iso?

    I've have tried many times and wasted dozens of cd's trying to make a bootable cd. The bootable cd I am trying to make is two files from the internet -a video card bios file and a flashing utility. I tell nero to burn the files does'nt work. I tell it to make a bootable cd but that does'nt work either. I also tried making the files into an iso then burning "does'nt work". I tried telling nero burn iso image to disc still not working. Also tell it burn image and make bootable disk won't work lol. Any help or suggestions will be much appreciated thanks.
