    I have planned to make a cd containing html internett sides.
    And I want to have a autorun command on the cd.

    Normal cd's use the command:

    , but I'll like to run a startpage instead. And ther is the problem, cause you cant just write autorun.ini like:


    this is made of the simple thing that the autorun command cant start a program on the computer, only one at the cd, and therfor will the iexplore ore mozilla start the index.html

    So I need help to make a program to start the web page. only somthing easy like run.exe

    I have found one on the nett called "shellrun" (google), but I'll want to make my own versjon of the program¨

    Thanks for replys!!

    Hi tin tin

    there are 2 ways to to creat a CD will autorun your HTML files

    1/ windows shell

    2/ java script

    about windows shell write this in the .inf file

    open=command /c start /max index.htm

    max means maximized html file and you have to know that this cd will only autorun on windows platforms

    about java scripts write this in the .inf file


    but in order to be maximized put the following script in your index html body

    <script language="JavaScript">
    if (document.all || document.layers)
    } else if (window.screen) {
      window.outerHeight = screen.availHeight;
      window.outerWidth = screen.availWidth;

    the last one will work in non-windows platforms
