Also, If this image has been added to WDS you have to export it before you can mount it for servicing.

Are you using Windows 7 or 2008 to mount this image?  If so make sure you are using an elevated command prompt.  Right click, Run as administrator then issue your command.

If you still experience issues see if you can mount it with imagex

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc749447(WS.10).aspx

Also, make sure the c:\mount folder is empty.
imagex /mountrw image_file image_number image_name image_path

imagex /mountrw "C:\RemoteInstall\Images\Windows 7\Windows 7 Pro -
Dell Latitude E6510.wim" 1 c:\mount

I was trying to do this on Server 2008.  I also have been using the administrative command prompt.  The mount directory is empty.

With Imagex I get the following:
C:\Users\admin\Desktop\ImageX_x64>imagex /mountrw "C:\RemoteInstall\Images\Windo
ws 7\Windows 7 Pro - Dell Latitude E6510.wim" 1 c:\mount

It is a Windows 7 32 bit image I am trying to mount.  Can a 32 bit image be mounted on a Server 2008 64 bit machine?

Check the properties of the image and make sure it isn't marked read only, also, check to make sure you have Read/Write access to the directory where the image is stored and where you are mounting it to.

Ah, I had taken the image offline, but I had not exported it.  I can mount the image now.  The Microsoft documentation I was following doesn't say anything about exporting the image.

Anyways, dism seems to have some trouble...  It keeps throwing an "Invalid request was made" error when accessing the mounted files.  But mounting the image with imagex seems to be working well.
