    Hello

    I want to have a CD autostart and display a text file (a sort of disclaimer)
    I created a text file called "message.txt" and an inf file to open it but it did not work.
    My next attempt opened notepad.exe
    Can someone please tell me how to make "message.txt open.

    Can it be done?
    Am I thick?
    Do I really have to go to work tomorrow!!?!

    Any ideas

    Autorun needs to load an executable that is available on the CD (running stuff already on the users computer would be a security risk). Check out:
    -AutoPlay Express 3.00
    -Autorun Constructor 1.6
    -CDOrc - MenuOrc 6.5

    Thanks

    Exactly what I needed. I have tried Autoplay Menu Builder 3.5 and will try the others later.

    Tnx again
