    exe file to start CD

    Good Evening folks

    This is my first attempt at posting something having signed on a couple of weeks ago but here goes.

    My friend has promised someone that I could copy some of the pages from my web site www.allaboutmarmaris.com on to a CD and also put on a file that would start the CD as one finds on some CD without the need to go to Start/Run etc.

    Can anyone help me on this one - where can I find such a file or program????

    Thanks in advance

    You can create them with Flash. Make a movie, with a 'Click to enter' button on it. Link the button relatively to your index. Then use the flash player. It offers an option to 'create projector' - namely an .exe file. Do that and it should work. Use a free disk off a pc mag or something to get the autorun code, and use software like www.irfanview.com to make an icon.

    Hope this helps

    PS if you haven't got Flash, try www.koolmoves.com - there's a free 30day demo - ample for you to make it!!

    All you really need is an autorun.inf

    Basicly open an autorun.inf file from a autorunning CD you own and Look at the file... If I can recall correctly the only line you will need is just.

    run=index.html
    that is if your home page is index.

    I've only ever got it to work with a .exe file. Maybe it's cos I had the icon code in there.

    I agree with pete,the only code you might need is as follows
    open notepad with a blank document.
    copy the code below in that file
    and save it as
    autorun.inf
    file,


    [autorun]
    open=index.html


    Presuming that index.html is the start up page for your app.

    Thanks very much, guys - whoops didn't check as there might have been a reply from a lady - if so pls add "gals"

    I have been looking at a few of the auto run files this afternoon and I think you have it right and I will check it out tomorrow and get back to you if it works.

    Thanks again.
