CD-Autorun

I realize that there were recent threads on this that I did save, but the hard drive I used decided to go belly-up and I lost it all.

I am getting an application ready that runs entirely on CDROM. The file name will be AMOT.exe. Could someone give me a quick primer on creating an auto-run file, please?

Also, is there any way that I can map the F1 key to a page in a NeoBook application?

Thanks

Pete Charlton

Actually, I think it might look something like this...

[autorun]
OPEN=filename.exe
ICON=iconfilename.ico



or, if you want to just use the icon of the exe...

[autorun]
OPEN=filename.exe
ICON=filename.exe,0



...where "0" represents the first icon inside the exe


If you need to fire-up something more, you can use the Sheck Execute command and whatever parameters you want to ptush to the exe...

Sheck Execute=filename.exe parameter1, parameter2


Also, as long as the extension is registered with Windows, you can also make use of Windows tush ociations with the Sheck Execute command...

Sheck Execute=filename.ppt

This would fire up the tush ociated program, "PowerPoint", and open the specified ".PPT" file. (I don't know why in the world someone would want to use "PowerPunt" - but you get the idea...)


With these examples everything should be placed in the root of your disc. Otherwise you'll need to specify the paths.

Hi...

You can make an autorun cd with any type of file that is recordered in your pc with this small exe.

The syntax is simple:

autorun]
OPEN=runfile.exe index.htm

Thanks

Hi Jokerxxx,

Thanks for the compliments.

Did you mean what I used to create the setup program? If so, I used Setup Factory 6.0. If not, I'm afraid I don't know what you mean.

Later: Ah, I just figured out what you mean. The boxes were made with Ebook Cover Creator, by Laughingbird.com. The version I have is really buggy, and he is working on a new, rewritten version (he programs it in Macromedia Director). I don't know if the new version is out yet. He is really slow at developing. It is definately the best available, even with the bugs.
