How to make a CD AutoRun

Hey Friends
  I have developed an application and i now wish to redistribute it with a AutoRun CD.
I created a CD with my application contents using Nero Software.
I also created a AutoRun.ini in the Root Drive of the CD The file read
[Autorun]
open=setup.exe
icon=setup.exe,0

Now when i copy this file to any of my hard disk and double click the drive the autorun application runs but when i do the same with CD it dose'nt work.
Any idea why this may happen ?
Regards

Try creating autorun.inf (in addition to autorun.ini, if you like) with the same
contents. And it should work fine.


Eg.

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

Also make sure you have autorun enabled,  it does matter what OS you are running as to how you can do this.

I have found you a link that shows you how to disable i for all OS's but you will want to do the reverse of whats here on this pgae :) http://www.annoyances.org/exec/show/article03-018

I hope this helps you

The file must be name autorun.inf (and not autorun.ini) and must be place on the root of your cdrom.
Besides, your autorun function must be enable !
