    Good idea, I was looking for something similar but a trial version would have been nice.

    This is one of the best add ins for using SBS2011 or WHS2011 in combination with a HTPC running Windows 7. Simply add the mounted ISO folder as search directory for movies, and you can watch them all without leaving the couch.

    Excellent addin! Something MS should offer natively in desktop and server os’s though. Kudos to the developer to making this happen.
