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.
