.NET/C#/PowerShell: building .NET DiscUtils library for virtual disk images

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/03/11

Mono Mac

.NET DiscUtils is an interesting open source .NET library for accessing and manipulating virtual disk images. Since it is entirely written in C# (without the need for P/Invoke), you should even be able to run this on non-Windows machines using mono. Later on, you will see the 0.11.0 build fails this, but it gives good hope it eventually will.

Virtual disk formats supported are DMG, ISO, RAW (IMG/IMA/VFD/FLP/BIF), VDI, VHD, VHDX, VMDK, and XVA, regular disks like Physical, iSCSI and NFS.

There are two ways of getting the .NET DiscUtils tools to run:

  1. download pre-build binaries (at the time of writing: version 0.10) from via .NET DiscUtils – Home, or
  2. from the latest source page, click the download button, then build the binaries from the source package. At the time of writing, that version is 0.11.

This post describes the second way, and requires PowerShell to be installed on your system (which probably is, as Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 include it). Read the rest of this entry »
