Compressed format files, like for example, the ZIP extension files require an expander to be launched. Others like the ISO extension files also require to be burnt onto a CD/DVD to be able to work. The only solution to avoid the decompression and burning of these files is to mount virtual units.
This task can be rather difficult with some applications, but that isn't the case with Pismo File Mount. A free lightweight application that is capable of mounting a wide range of compressed formats in virtual folders, thus avoiding their extraction.
