Description of directory structure for Arsenal Image Mounter repository.
libewf.dll and zlib.dll binaries (to facilitate EnCase/EWF image mounting) are
included under their respective licenses - see lgpl-3.0.txt and
zlib license.txt.
----------------------
Graphical applications
----------------------
This directory contains ArsenalImageMounter.exe.
One-piece (with the exception of libewf.dll) powerful tool for mounting
disk image files as virtual drives. Supports raw disk images and various
virtual machine image formats through integrated DiscUtils library. Also
supports certain forensics image formats if libewf.dll is also installed.
Automatically installs necessary driver components if not already installed.
ArsenalImageMounter.exe requires .NET Framework 4.x, which is included by
default in Windows 8 or later. Can be installed separately on Windows XP,
Vista or 7.
Tested on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, but should also work on Windows XP or Vista.
-------------------------
Command line applications
-------------------------
aim_cli.exe:
Command line tool for mounting various disk image formats as virtual drives in
a way similar to the graphical ArsenalImageMounter.exe.
Does not include driver setup files. Driver could be set up separately using
either command line tool aim_ll.exe or graphical ArsenalImageMounter.exe, or
the separate packages in the DriverSetup directory.
aim_cli.exe requires .NET Framework 4.x, which is included by
default in Windows 8 or later. Can be installed separately on Windows XP,
Vista or 7.
Tested on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, but should also work on Windows XP or Vista.
aim_ll.zip:
Command line tools that provide access to most features of virtual SCSI
miniport driver that is used with Arsenal Image Mounter. Command line syntax
is very similar to that of ImDisk Virtual Disk Driver, so most commands and
scripting work in a similar way. There are also command line switches for
installing or uninstalling the virtual SCSI miniport driver.
None of the files in this zip archive require any .NET Framework components.
Tested on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, but should also work on any Windows version
from Windows 2000 and up.
-----------
DriverSetup
-----------
Setup tools and signed driver packages that can be used to install the driver
components alone.
ArsenalImageMounterGUISetup.exe:
One-piece simple driver setup GUI application that includes everything to
automatically install the correct driver for current version of Windows.
ArsenalImageMounterCLISetup.exe:
Command line version of ArsenalImageMounterGUISetup.exe, with same
functionality and requirements.
Both ArsenalImageMounterGUISetup.exe and ArsenalImageMounterCLISetup.exe
require .NET Framework 4.x or later, which is included by default in Windows
8 or later. Can be installed separately on Windows XP, Vista or 7.
DriverSetup.7z:
Both driver setup files and command line tool aim_ll.exe as a 7-zip archive.
Useful for automated driver setup, for example for use from a script.
Application files in this archive do not require any .NET components.
DriverSetup.zip:
Driver setup files only (sys, cat and inf files). For use when integrating
driver setup with, for example, other driver setup packages.
