do you mean when any cd is inserted? or you plan on burning a cd with an autorun feature? if its the latter then ya just need to create a file called autorun.inf and inside that file with notepad put the following 2 lines:


then put that file and yer html file (called autorun.html) in the root directory of the cd when ya burn it.

That is quite interesting, thanks Birdkiller... :)

does that actually work with html files? i know it does with applications, but html?

the way I do it (it's kinda cheating) is i've got a little file called booter.com which is set to autorun, and what that does is opens a file called default.html... that's the reason I didn't think html files would autorun....

if html files wont autorun then ya should be able to start em using the command:

open="explorer autorun.html"

I've tested this and it works.

Hmmmm..... TweakTown on CD-R anyone? Well, maybe DVD-R. :)

again, you can't really do it that way either.. some people don't use explorer.. or choose not to...

that way doesnt use internet exlplorer, it uses window explorer. if they use a Windows OS then it'll work

I've been using WinOpen for this for a long time:

other solutions are: Starterfile: http://www.autorun.co.uk/autorun/autorun.htm

or CD Autorun: http://www.installsite.org/files/autorun102.zip

I like Winopen best as its only 3K, but CD Autorun enables you to create professional looking autorun screens with graphical buttons [etc.]
