I'm trying to set up a CD with a stand alone website on it.

The problem is that I need it to launch automatically when the user places the CD into the drive.

I've tried autorunning a Flash swf (exe) file, and that works fine, but from there I can't get the Flash file to launch a browser to the specific html page.

I was wondering if I can bypass Flash, and have the autorun open the html page directly in the users default browser.

Is this possible?

I've also tried simply:

I then get an error saying that "D:\ is not a valid Win32 application."
It won't even let me look at the contents of the CD on the drive.

Any thoughts as to how I can get this to work? TIA
