FYI:  Reese is not on this mailing list, but I will be glad to forward
your posting to him (along with these comments), by CCing him.

Thanks for mentioning InfraRecorder:  I was actually attempting to
remmber that one.  It's a _genuine open source_ graphical Win32
application for MS-Windows to burn CDs and DVDs from ISOs.  Like one
other tool mentioned, it is a graphical front-end to the MS-Windows port
of Joerg Schilling's cdrtools suite of command-line applications.
(Therefore, I strongly suspect it can also burn BluRay.)

The dependency Reese mentioned for ImgBurn was something called 'Windows
Manager', which he says is not part of his MS-Windows installation.
FWIW, I think you are correct and that Reese must have misinterpreted
something he read.  For completeness's sake:  ImgBurn is a standalone
(binary .exe) proprietary-licensed but free of charge graphical utility
for MS-Windows that burns CD/DVD/BluRay discs from ISOs.

There is also a long list of CD/DVD/BluRay-burning utilities for
MS-Windows at the bottom of InfraRecorder's Wikipedia page:
