Link to PDF files from DVD Menu

Hey all,

I'm in a bit of a rush right now trying to help a client out with their DVD.

I don't have a Mac so I can't use DVD@access which seems to be the only program out there that seems to work.

I need a PC based DVD / DVD menu creator that will give me the ability to simply link to a file on the root of the DVD. I have tried roughly 6 programs so far from cheap looking programs to the trials of the big boys software, yet I see no way of making a link from a DVD menu to a site or file.

This is a little ridiculous that after hours of searching nothing comes up in google. I created a DVD with an advertisement and slideshow for my client using windows dvd maker. Everything came out fine, but I had to make a note on the dvd menu stating that the user will need to access the DVD contents for their documentation (pdf files). We're dealing with shop owners, technology illiterates.
Watch Question

Mac software like iMovie, iDVD and the one you mention, are SO much better for making DVDs than any PC software, I am afraid to say (being a PC person myself).  When it comes to us authoring DVDs, we use ONLY the Mac, no one wastes their time with the inept PC software.  So I'd recommend you find a friend with a newish Mac and do it there.
