One way is to put a file named AUTORUN.INF on the root directory
of the CD containing lines, for example:


If autostart is enabled, this will start the PROGRAM.EXE when the
CD is inserted. Also, PowerToys package (Win95) contains a
program named Autoplay Extender, that will prompt you for what
to run when a CD is inserted with autostart enabled.



1. CD AutoStart


I recently burned a bunch of software application files into a blank CD.  I
have also designed an HTML page containing links to run each of these files.

How can I make my CD AUTO-START so that when this CD is placed in the CD ROM
Drive, the HTML page comes up automatically with the various options to
select from.
