create a searchable CD

Hi gurus,

I would like to create a searchable CD and an interface (from a browser like IE if possible) to go with it, in VB6.

Has anyone any ideas how I could start on this? I know the first thing I probably have to do is create an index file of contents. TIA!!

What do you mean by a searchable cd? you want to make your own explorer for it? or more like an autorun thing?

Hi List244,

More like an autorun thing...when they pop in the CD, I want an IE interface with boxes to enter search criteria to display automatically. The user enters search criteria, clicks a search button, and the results are present back, in IE. Something like google.com I suppose. TIA

Why IE interface?  

If you just want an IE interface, then VB probably isn't the language you want, more javascript thing.

I suppose you could use VBScript/ActiveX.

Autoruns are easy, put a file called autorun.inf in the root directory of the cd with these lines of text in:

[autorun]
OPEN=YOUREXE.EXE
ICON=YOURICON.ICO

You can leave the icon out if you want.
