I recently downloaded a trial version of an application that was packaged as an ISO image. I decided to mount the image with Daemon Tools to install the trial instead of burning to a DVD and installing that way. Anyhow I mounted the image which then became drive K: on my computer.

Error: Please insert Application Name into drive K:\ to continue the installation.
