Basically, you must create an .inf file named Autorun.inf in the root of your CD. Then place the file in a folder on the cd and edit the Autorun.inf like this:

[Autorun]
Open=MyFolder\myExe.exe

I'm not quite sure if the autorun will run for a none exe file (in this case .pps file)

But here is a workaround, as for the above statement:

Open=MyFolder\myExe.exe

create an exe at MyFolder name it as myExe.exe

That by generating the myExe.exe file, we open the pps by using Shell function, example using VB:

Create a form, in the Form_Load Event:

Shell [my pps file's path]

Hope this make help
