Windows Integration is an advanced feature that permits to access DAEMON Tools Lite features right from the contextual menu while in Explorer. To use this feature, go to the License tab, pick Windows. You can start the three-day Trial or Buy Windows Integration feature.
To enable this feature go to Settings -> Preferences -> Integration, pick the needed file associations, check the Enable Shell Extensions and press Apply. Now your Shell Extensions are activated.
How and where to use
You can use Shell Extensions literally anywhere in Explorer to use the following DAEMON Tools Lite features:
Mount or Create a RAM disk. Create a persistent RAM disk linked to the chosen VHD file. Available for VHD files.
Mount to existing DT drive, add a new DT drive to mount. Available for all Archive files.
Mount as Encrypted. Starting from DAEMON Tools Lite 10.7, you can “hide” your encrypted files by changing their extension. DAEMON Tools Lite offers to mount this file anyway. Note that as any encrypted file, it will need a password. Available for all types of files.
Create an image. Choose files and folders, open the contextual menu and pick this option to create an image file. Available for all types of files.
Grab a Disc. Choose the physical drive and pick this option from the contextual menu to create an image from disc. Available for all ATAPI physical drives.
Mount, Unmount or Remove. Choose the virtual drive, open the contextual menu and pick the needed option. Available for all virtual devices.
Make sure you have set all the file associations correctly, otherwise DAEMON Tools Lite will not be able to define the Shell Extensions a certain file needs. For example, if the *.iso file is not associated with DAEMON Tools Lite — only the Mount as encrypted option will be available in the contextual menu. To check the file associations go to Preferences -> Integration.
