View Full Version : Autorun.inf not working



11-03-2001, 02:04 PM
Situation: Have burnt some photos to a Cd along with the viewer software with which includes the following autorun.inf file:

[autorun]
open=ShortCut32.exe

Both autorun.inf and ShortCut.exe are in the root directory of the CD. If I manually double click the ShortCut32.exe file on the CD it opens the photo album software located on the CD and works fine. However, when the CD is inserted it whirs for 20 seconds or so then stops, without opening the software. Ie, the autorun is not working.

Anyone with some experience with autorun able to help??

Thanks
