Alcohol 120%

This is the Free Edition of the popular burning app, Alcohol 120%. It was released a part of Alcohol-Soft's 11th birthday. The software allows you to use up to two virtual drives (rather than 31 in the retail version), and has the ability to write to only one drive simultaneously. It also lacks copy protection options.

What works

- Installing and running the software

- Burning image files onto CD/DVD

What does not

The installer complains that the device driver is not found, so the virtual drives do not function. Installer proceeds anyway.


- Make sure that you execute winecfg and select Windows 10 in the Applications tab, otherwise you will get a "Failed to initialise service, code 0" error and installer aborts.

- You have to run A120% from command line, or you get "File not found" errors.
