    In the help file of HDM14, under "What's New", it says:

    New UIM (Universal Image Mounter). Apart from PBF images, Universal Image Mounter enables to mount (assign a drive letter to) pVHD backup images (full and incremental) to browse their contents and retrieve data both, in the program and directly under Windows OS.
    I can't see any option in the programme for mounting the pVHD file. I can "connect" to the virtual image inside HDM14, but the image is not mounted either in the sense of having a drive letter nor in the sense of being visible under Windows' own Disk Management snap-in. Right clicking a partition inside the "connected" pVHD disk does not give an option to assign a drive letter nor can I see such an option in any of the menus. What am I doing wrong? How can I invoke the "Universal Image Mounter" as advertised above?

    I have mounted pVHDs with this procedure: Full Scale Launcher > Archives > "Add" the VD to the archives database > select “Show VD containers” and “Show partitions” > the icon “Mount Archive” appears > click this icon.

    Thank you! I can confirm that did the trick -- i.e. select "Show Partitions" rather than "Show All" on the Archives tab. Now I can mount the partition with a drive letter. I also just found this discussion over on another thread under a different forum section: https://www.wilderssecurity.com/threads/solved-hdm-14-suite-and-pvhd-files.356115/ . Beats me why these "requirements" for simple operations to become available aren't clearly explained in the help file, or even in the interface.
