Thread: getting a flash exe to "auto run" when the CD is put in

  1. #1
    hey flashers,

    I am trying to get a flash-exported .exe file to run as soon as the CD is put into the drive. I can't seem to get it to work, or get my registry file configured correctly to test it.

    My understanding that to get the CD to launch immediately you only need to use an .inf file with simeple code like:

    [autorun]
    OPEN=example.exe -AUTORUN
    ICON=example.exe,0

    and that this file needs to be in a "root" directory.

    I put the auto run file into a "root" folder - and then had the .exe file outside the root folder, with the auto run file calling on the .exe file. it didn't work though.

    I am looking for anyone who has successfully done this with a flash exported .exe - any ideas on how to change the code, or maybe I'm doing something wrong with haivng the .inf file in the "root" folder or something.

    Thanks much,

    Donny

    A friend of mine had a program called CD run maker (or something like that). It's a really cool program and does all the work. It creates all the files you need to burn to a CD to make it auto run...

    This works and it's free

    [AutoRun]
    open=Pres.exe
    icon=Pres.exe,0

    And the file should be called AUTORUN.INF

    kel is right. I use JStart to open a new browser window from a flash exe without having to be online. Sorry for the confusion.
