USB Autorun

Ok,

Its been asked before but I wanted to see if there was anysolution of software out there that may have come about after so many questions.

My Company has designed a Power Point Presentation, they are putting it on a USB Drive to be distributed to our vendors, how do we get that presentation to start when the drive is inserted into the port.

Thanks

This may be more appropriate, since the machine doesn't need to be booted from the USB key:
Autorun USB

The software link anobe has to be installed on each machine before the autorun thing works..............

In general, Autorun and USB flash drives does NOT work without special software installed on the PC........

By the way, this will point you to this same discussion(s) here on experts exchange:

http://search.experts-exchange.com/search.jsp?query=usb+autorun&searchType=all¤tTAID=45

Common denominator:   Several people have asked before, and more or less cannot be done the way you want (without special software installed).

If that was a solution, why does Autorun USB even exist and is being sold?  It should be pretty easy to test out.
