Hi Experts,

I have made a setup package (with the setup.exe file) in CD.
Will the setup.exe be automaticlly loaded when I put the CD in the drive? Or, I need to write some code to let it working?

Look at autorun.ini on any CD you have at the moment.  That's how it's done, and it's easy :)

Sorry - that should be autorun.inf

Put the following into that file, and burn onto a CD with the setup.exe:

[autorun]
OPEN=SETUP.EXE /AUTORUN

That's from the VS disk, and the /AUTORUN switch may not be applicable for you
