Hi folks, my son is doing a CD for his class's project and they would like it to autoload from the CDROM.
As I understand it, its a small VB app that has a path to an exe file for the app that they would like to open.
Apart from that I'm not sure.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Regards Ned

Ya,

As from the link :)

In your CD, create an INF file named "AUTORUN",

put the code like this:

[autorun]
open=setup.exe
icon=setup.exe

setup.exe is the Setup file for your program.
