My program runs from a CD and it will be automatically launched when the user will insert it in the CD Drive. However the program will not automatically launch in Windows Media Center Edition. It seems that the Media Center Edition interferes with the autorun feature. There is any solution to make my program to be automatically launched in Windows Media Center Edition?

Thanks,
