I have Microsoft's "Virtual CD-ROM Control Panel for Windows XP" installed on my XP, but recently, when I was searching for a Disc Drive Emulator (for use in Win7), I didn't even try installing that, cuz I figured it wouldn't work in Win7. Also, in my searches, I did not stumble upon WinCDEmu, the only thing I could find was SlySoft's Virtual CloneDrive...which is "freeware" & it works, but it's made by a company that sells other software (I don't like using even the freeware from payware companies). I wish I had noticed WinCDEmu, cuz I would've tried that 1st.

Can an ISO or image be created containing AHK scripts then mounted permanently to a fake drive letter?

Virtual CloneDrive works and behaves just like a physical CD/DVD drive, however it exists only virtually. Image files generated with CloneDVD or CloneCD can be mounted onto a virtual drive from your hard-disk or from a network drive and used in the same manner as inserting them into a normal CD/DVD drive.
Probably the best virtual drive software, Virtual CloneDrive allows you to enjoy the freedom of a virtual drive and is completely free.
Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, CCD
Supports up to 8 virtual drives at the same time
Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost.
An IBM-compatible personal computer with a minimum 500 MHz Pentium-class microprocessor (1 GHz recommended) and 128 MB RAM (256 MB recommended)
Windows 98, Windows ME, Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32 or 64 bit)
If you use Windows 2000 or Windows XP you must be an administrator to install Virtual CloneDrive

Why?? You are bound to give yourself a lot of headaches if you are so pedantic about the software you use. Slysoft's VirtualClone Drive is wonderful software--I've used it for 5 years without any problems whatsoever, and found it to be rock solid, small and simple.
There is nothing wrong with charging for your work. Obviously free and open software is always nicer, but we mustn't forget that developers have families to feed. Eventually a large number of free software projects, particularly small-scale ones (e.g. not Firefox) get abandoned because the developers were dying in a gutter and had to find real jobs, and now they are too busy with work to continue supporting the projects. In summary, developers are real people.
