The Function control section defines the Virtual CD user interface in the client and determines which Virtual CD functions are available:

Do not show Explorer extension controls: The Virtual CD Explorer extension is deactivated: The Explorer extension adds Virtual CD controls and functions to shortcut menus opened in the Windows Explorer.
Quick Start utility: The Virtual CD Quick Start utility is available in the Windows taskbar.
Virtual CDs are displayed in a list: Enables display of images as a CD overview.

Deny access to unregistered virtual CDs: CDs that are not listed in the Virtual CD configuration file cannot be used.
