WinCDEmu is garbage with a shitty developer. DTL outclasses it in every aspect, including actually being able to emulate a CD/DVD-Rom drive (something WinCDEmu ironically can't do), meaning installers on some disc images will simply fail to execute. It also has issues with things like MDF/MDS.

One of the rare cases where the only FOSS alternative is lightyears behind a proprietary freeware solution.
