I need to figure out how to make an autorun routine for a cd.

the product i am working on is all done in frontpage, but will be distributed on cd. Can someone point me to a place that tells you how to have xxxxx.htm page open when the CD in inserted?

OPEN=yourprogram or file (e.g. xxxx.html)
ICON=path to your logo icon

Save as autorun.inf

As simple as that. ;)

I finally got around to trying this out and cannot get it to function properly. I created a file called AUTORUN.INF and the file reads as follows


I do not have a line for ICON as i do not have an icon to use as of yet. When i have this on the CD i get a error

Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied.

Any clues?

I had to do it using the following two files:




@echo off
start index.htm
