autorun.inf question. Should be easy.

autorun.inf question. Should be easy.

Don't know where else to go on this. First time trying an autorun.inf.

I want the system to open a web page on the CD when it is inserted.

There, easy enough?

RE: autorun.inf question. Should be easy.

I am not at a PC with a CD burner at the moment to test this out - but this is what I would do first.

Create the autorun.inf in notepad or some other editor, and save it with the following text:

open=iexplore.exe <pathname to html file>

Good Luck

RE: autorun.inf question. Should be easy.

Hmmm... well... the web page is on the CD. And that path may change.

Also, I tried that, and it doesn't work. Can I use \%system%\iexplorer.exe ?

RE: autorun.inf question. Should be easy.

open=start whatever.html

RE: autorun.inf question. Should be easy.
