Thomas, the "xorriso.exe" files that are available are not really 
"around". They are not easy to find, and they are old versions. I am 
just mentioning this so to avoid giving the impression that some 
Windows user could "easily" use xorriso. Now, if such user wants to 
build xorriso from source under Windows, that's not "easy" nor a task 
"for everyone".

For a Windows-based command-line tool, "mkisofs.exe" _is_ easily 
available (together with the whole CDRTOOLS / CDRECORD binary archive) 
in its very latest (alpha) version, 3.02a06.
