View Full Version : Autorun (sorry if this is the wrong forum)

07 July 2003, 03:25 PM
Hey not really a programming guy so wondering if anyone can help me? I am creating a demo reel / video resume and would like to burn this to CD or DVD and would like to know how to get the CD to start right after you put it in the drive as opposed to having to go into like explorer and double clicking something. Can anyone tell me the best way of doing this? I am thinking of maybe doing the resume in flash. I can use other formats just thought this might be easier. The demo reel would most like just be a .avi.

Thanks in advance!!!

This is the wrong forum! :)
However, this is what you do...easypeasy:

create an empty textfile called "autorun.inf"
write the following in it:


Replace "YOURFILE" with the name of your projector flash file.
You can also add this line:


, if you know how to make an icon-file. I recommend MicroAngelo.
Place "autorun.inf" and you flash file in the root of the CD.
