Hi people,
I have a program that I downloaded from the net. A friend at work wants it, so I said Id copy it for him. Can I do it so his pc autoruns the setup file, as he has no clue about computers! It would just make things a whole lot easier. Thanks for your help.

Do you want to create a CD with it to make it autorun?

If it is only a standard program, email it to him and tell him to doubleclick - easy as that. It will not auto install for him, no matter what you do.

I want to burn the program to a cd. I want to make the setup file autorun. Then when he inserts the cd, the setup will commence. Can I do this? Thanks.

Open Notepad and type in

[AutoRun]

open=setup.exe

Choose Save AS then name it

Autorun.inf

now set the next box to All Files (It says text)

Save it and then burn this with the other files onto the cd. If the setup.exe is in a folder then it would be

open=folder name\setup.exe
