CD Autorun

Recommended Posts


Hi guys, complete novice. I am trying to autorun a cd which contains two three files: File.1 myfile.wmv, file.2 myfile.exe and file. 3 myfile.ico.

Procedure: myfile.wmv is to play first for a specified time, its closed and then myfile.exe is to plays for a specified time and close down.

I have had a trying using ShellExecute ( "myfile.wmv/myfile.exe", "" ,"" , "open" ) which opens the files fine. I have also played around with until WinWaitActive, Do Sleep (sometime) without any success.

I have also tried to use a .vbs script (which worked by itself), however when combined with the autorun.inf I get error E:\ is not a valid Win32 application. I am going to try using autorun.inf to call myfile.bat to call myfile.vbs, which hopefully will run the two files.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

I think, you should create a compiled AutoIt-script as the starter-application:

ShellExecuteWait(@ScriptDir & "\video.wmv")
ShellExecute(@ScriptDir & "\app.exe")

It would be even better if you would include a mediaplayer on you CD being completely independent from the Software installed on the host-pc. You could use VLC for example.
