Any of you tried making autorun CDROMS?

I'd appreciate hints and tips before I go into wholesale coaster production; in particular, is

Icon = necessary?

I've created a batch file and converted it to an exe file, will this perform ok as

Open=myfile.exe ?


Thanks

your response. I looked at these sites before I came here, what need is first hand experience.

Hi seedie. I often make autorun powerpoint disks for slide shows. This is the file I use. (I've added a blank line to preserve the formatting). The file is simply a text file written is notepad, but has to be called AUTORUN.INF

[AutoRun]

open = Ppview32.exe slideshow.ppt

Then add the line to autorun.inf

ICON=AUTORUN.ICO,0

And make sure there is a bmp picture called AUTORUN.ICO that is 32 x 32 pixels

The autorun.inf and autorun.ico must both be in the cd root and not a folder.

For interest sake would you please explain the syntax of -

open = Ppview32.exe slideshow.ppt


Thanks David

Hi david4637. In my cd I am using Powerpoint viewer (ppview32.exe) to run a slideshow saved as slideshow.ppt. This is the result of using "Pack and Go" after creating the slideshow in PowerPoint. I do this to run a slideshow with PowerPoint transitions and titles.

seedie, the icon is only necessary if you want to personalise the icon Windows Explorer shows alongside the drive letter. An interesting side effect of this is that if you copy the cd to a hard drive partition, you can be stuck with that icon allocated to that partition.
