On other autorun.inf related questions on this site there has been put forward the solution of writing a vbs script to be called from the autorun.inf on a cd, so as to get iexplore index.htm to run. Im unable to get this solution to work on XP pro.
(runie.vbs)
dim sh
set sh =CreateObject("WSCript.shell")
sh.run "index.htm"

(autorun.inf)
open=runie.vbs

Any ideas. I dont want to write a program.

If only a file name is specified, it must be in drive's root directory.

Second, try this format:

OPEN=WScript.exe runie.vbs
