Need Help: software development for a USB device
can a USB device automatically launch an application?

 2:22 pm on Apr 13, 2007 (gmt 0)

Our company is trying to determine the feasibility of having a USB device automatically launch an application when inserted into a computer. Is this feasible? even when the USB device connects to the computer for the first time?

1. I look forward to any assistance that can be provided.

2. If your company can develop a software application for a USB device, we are looking to outsource this development. Please stickymail me with your contact (and company) information.

It cannot be done with standard usb sticks, but it can be done with custom models that identify themselves as either cd-rom drives for hard drives.

With a standard usb stick and XP Service Pack 2 onwards, you can use standard autoplay methods (for CDs) but a run dialog is still displayed.
