HOWTO: Create an AutoRun (or AutoPlay) CD-ROM

If your installation is distributed on a CD-ROM, you may want to automatically run the installer or some sort of menu application when users insert the CD-ROM.

This can be accomplished by creating a file named Autorun.inf in the root directory of the CD-ROM. It points to the name of an executable to run when the CD-ROM is inserted. Here is an example of what an Autorun.inf file may look like:

[autorun] 
open=Filename.exe 

For full details on Autorun.inf files, see the article Creating an AutoRun-Enabled Application on Microsoft's web site.
