Well. I need help here...

I'm making a CD-ROM for a client, and I need to figure out how to get the CD to auto-start when it's put into the CD drive.

I've seen the file on other CD's that do this, but they always seem to refer to an .exe file.

Example from AUTORUN.INF:

[autorun]
OPEN=EPSON.exe
ICON=CDROM.ICO

The file I NEED to just open up automatically is an .html file, NOT an .exe file. There are no .exe files on this CD.

How can I do this? (PLEASE don't say it isn't possible to autostart an .html file.. please don't say that!)

I've tried to just replicate the code appropriately when burning the CD, but it either isn't possible with .html files... or I'm just doing it wrong.

Do I need it to refer to IE.exe, then re-refer it to the .html... or compile a custom .exe file... (how is that done?)... or what???

Help???

Just did the same thing myself...

This bit of code, saved as autorun.inf, will do the trick for you -

[autorun]
open=start /max myfilename.htm



That's it...

In case you were wondering, the "start /max" bit opens it in its own window, and maximizes the window. "open" in autorun is very versatile: it will start a program if you put the name of a program, or if you put the name of a file, it will try to open the file with the correct program. If it can't find it it will ask you what program you want to try to open it with.
