AutoRun Video from USB on win7

I have a simple video called "video.wmv" that I want to load a bunch of USB sticks and have the video automatically play when plugged into a PC (presumably with win7 on it). I have tried code that looks like this:

" [autorun]
OPEN=video.wmv "

I had no luck with this... So then I tried using this code:

" OPEN=video.wmv


shell\configure=&Configure...
shell\configure\command=video.wmv "

Still, with no luck.

Is there a way to get the video to play in full screen mode when the USB is plugged in, with NO mouse clicks at all? OR something close to that? I keep getting the "AutoPlay" dialogue box everytime I plug in the USB, which asks you to select which program to use to open it.

Any help would be great.

Thanks.

Microsoft has removed that capability, thanks to the malware industry..

The news is not good for Windows 7 I'm sorry to say, since it won't allow AutoRun for USB, Microsoft again has sacrificed usability to the false god of security. It will work for CD/DVD though. And it should work OK on XP & Vista if your users have that. Alternatively you could install a program on the PC that will overcome this problem, but some cost is involved, and for a one-off it might not be worth the investment.

Hope that helps
