    Another autorun Q

    Hi, Michael here.
    New to this forum and like what I have seen thus far. I have a question relating to gbailey's post a week ago. I would like to set up an autorun.inf file on my CDs to automatically open windows explorer with the contents of the CD in the viewing pane when I pop a CD in the drive. I know how to set the properties of an explorer shortcut to open at a specific drive or folder etc, but what I would like is to switch the shortcut to be universal. By that I mean, that explorer would open at the CD contents when inserted in any drive on any computer regardless of the drive letter. Does anybody know of a way to do this ? Thanks for any help.

    There are a bundle of utilities available here at Tucows, and a thread discussing the issue here at computing.net.

    Thank you for a quick response, I appreciate it. I found a program at Tucows called Visual Autorun that I believe is what I needed. While it is a time limited shareware version it should let me at least work out how the autorun.inf is put together so I can then write my own. Thanks again.

    You might also want to take a look at Karen Kenworthy's Autorun. It's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>
