Mount Iso image using Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel?

Hello,
Firstly, I'd like to apologize if I am posting in the incorrect section.
I download Microsoft's Virtual CD-ROM, Download Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel from Official Microsoft Download Center
And followed the instructions in the readme.txt file
I get an error, "The handle is invalid" when I try to add the VCdRom.sys on step #4.
I'm not exactly sure what I am doing wrong.
I would prefer to use a Microsoft product, rather then a 3rd party tool like Virtual Clone Drive, or whatever else similar to it.
Has anyone else tried this Microsoft Virtual CD-ROM tool and gotten this error?
I am running Win 7 Pro x64.

Iv never used it but it is not supported my Microsoft so I would just use clone drive, imo its he best unless you have something like deamon tools already. Try running the installer on step 4 as admin, that error normally means you don't have low level access to the file your trying to open. I use clone and deamon for refrence.

Glad you got it sorted, is it basically like the built-in one that WIN 8 uses?
