    Powerpoint auto start

    I am using Office '97 and have created a Powerpoint presentation for my company. I would like to burn it to several CDR disks. I need to know how to make the disks auto start if someone does not have Powerpoint loaded into their computer

    I believe you need something called an ".inf" file or equivalent. It gives the OS instructions on what to do with the data on the CD.

    You can also save the PPT file as a ".pps" which makes the file run automatically when double-clicked.

    Try this site by a PowerPoint MVP, who has written an excellent "how to" on this topic:
