Hi, I hope you can help. We locked down our computers from running autorun files. Now we have found an area that has to have the autorun work. We don't want it totally automatic, but want the user to have to manually start it.

How can we manually start an autorun file on a CD?

Thanks
Harv

You right click on the CD-ROM via My Computer and select Autoplay or Install menu option.

Thanks for your help. That gives me the option for what I want to do on audio, video and images files. Doesn't give the option for the autorun file. When the CD is created, it has specific data in the autorun file for each cd.

Maybe there is a way to call the autorun from a batch file?

Thanks
Harv

You could use a batch file, but each computer would have to be manually done.
