Autorun on a USB drive
Posted on 2011-03-18
I've created a VB.NET executable to run on a USB stick. Below is my autorun.inf.
action=Run Peterbilt USB Application
I delivered the end product to the customer, expecting to be finished with this only to have a variety of issues.
I got him to reset to default each of the entries under the USB's properties....which apparently means 'Prompt me each time to choose an action'.
With his computer, the default form that displays refers to it wanting to open Pictures (I do have pdf files in a subfolder). And my 'action' entry above does not display in his action list. He goes to another computer it displays properly. He goes to another computer and it does the same thing it did on the first computer.
If you have an autorun.inf at the ROOT of the drive, why would it not AUTOMATICALLY run the autorun.inf???? Provided the settings were to prompt each time. Just another ideosynch from Microsoft?? Or am I missing something??
