anyone know of any *free* applications that will write autorun files to get a cd to...autorun when inserted?

I've reverse engineered some CDs as far as I could, and as far as I can tell, there is Autorun.inf, which points the computer towards some intermediary application which then runs the final application (I want it to launch a flash projector file "supplementary.exe")

If this were merely as simple as writing the autorun.inf file, I'd throw this thread into the coding forum, but I'm pretty sure I need another application to write this autorun application...

/takes breath

can anyone point me in the right direction?

I... am an idiot. as a little experiment to my better logic, I wrote a simple autorun myself, burned it... and it works happily. Pulling apart all kinds of professional CD's, I'm not surprised that I should think they are more complicated than they actually have to be for my purposes:

[autorun]
open=supplementary.exe

done. someone hit me in the face with a stick (lol) :p

thank you captain grammar :)

I know it won't work always - hence the complicated autoruns on most professional discs. But this particular method worked for my humble purposes, therefore, problem solved :rolleyes:

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.
