Autorunning a broswer from a CD
Posted on 2002-05-07
This is not strictly a programming question, but this is probalby the best topic for it...
in need to create a CD that has an HTML file on it and that opens the file automatically on the user's browser when the CD is inserted in the computer.
I have used autorun.inf files before to run EXEs, but now I need to open a specific file using a non-specific EXE. i..e the EXE is on the computer, but I don't know where or even what it is called (might be IE might be netscape etc.)
I need this for windows 95 and later.
Can this be done?
(note my current solution is to run an EXE on the browser that uses Shellexecute() to open the browser, but I'd like a more direct solution--if there is one.)
