    Hey all.

    I have a pressing issue with a Flash on presentation on CD that will start up from the CD on both Mac and PC.

    I am working on a PC with Flash 5, have access to Macs with Flash 4, and have no idea how to get this to work.

    Help!

    For PC:

    Use autorun.inf on the CD. It should look something like this...

    [autorun]
    open=autorun.exe start.html

    Where autorun.exe is an executable that will lanuch a file (public domain, do a web search for "autorun.exe download") and start.html is an HTML file which contain the tags to launch the flash stuff.

    Some warnings:::::

    If the user turns off autorun for their CD's this will not work.

    If the user has disabled the *.html file extention to be launched by IE/Netscape this will not work.
