    CD Menu Creation (Fp2003 WpHesp3)

    I'd like some help please: we send some of our clients cd's with programmes on them. There is an autorun file whch fires up our front end menu page - created in front page 2003. The trouble is that non of the hyperlings work, here is just one:
    ///Money_Manager_Programe_Files/Setup.exe
    The directory is valid, as is the executable. Any one point out what is wrong please?

    Hi Stephen

    I am assuming that the setup.exe file is inside a folder called Money_Manager_Programe_Files

    Have you tried the syntax:

    Hi Jerry,
    Sorry to respond a few months later! Howevr this afternoon the project surfaced again and I tried your solution, this resulted in a file not found error. I copied and pasted your reply into frontpage. Any further thoughts please?

    Hi Stephen

    This should do the job
    <pre><!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 3.2 Final//EN">
    <HTML>
    <HEAD>
    <TITLE>Run Executable HTA</TITLE>
    </HEAD>
    <body bgcolor=#565656>
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
    var oShell = new ActiveXObject("WScript.Shell");
    var prog = "D:Money_Manager_Programe_Filessetup.exe";
    oShell.run ('"'+prog+'"',1);

    </script>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>
    </pre>

    It is currently assuming the CD drive is the D Drive, we may have to rethink this if the drive letters change but it is a start
