I would like to restore from a vhd that was completd with the backup software in Windows Vista.  I have followed the steps in the following  Experts Exchange article (08.08.2008 at 04:05PM PDT, ID: 23634300) found in Experts Exchange but to no avail.

The steps that I have completed are as follows:
downloaded and installed the VHDMount portion of Microsoft VS
downloaded and installed the update for VS
Note:  I did not install the entirety of the program--just the vhdmount portion.


disabled the User Account Control option

created a reg file in order to simplify the process by right clicking on the vhd file to mount/dismount

However, my drive still does not mount.  There must be something that I am missing.  I would truly appreciate any help.  

Thank so much.
