If the Auto Run CD checkbox is checked then the Autorun section will become editable and a autorun.inf file will be placed at the root of the CDROM image.


The autorun section defines actions as well as icon and label to be used when the CD is inserted in the drive. Autorun help is a lot more than most people think and everyone should read the help page at the MSDN web site. Autorun Help

Exe Cmd - has 2 options open and shellexecute. The open command is used to execute any .exe or .com file. The shellexecute command executes the file handler associated with the extention of the file. If a .txt then it might open the notepad program but depends on the handler associated.

Exe Name - place the file to be run by the open or shellexecute here. If the file is not at the root of the CD then you need to use the full path minus the drive letter, '\dir\file.exe'. Also use the 'Set Autorun Exe' menu option in the directory tree menu to select a file to execute.

CD Icon - this is the icon displayed in the windows Explorer program when the CD is inserted. This can be an image file or a .exe that contains an image resource. If you use a file that contains more than one image then you need to give the index of the image in the file.

CD Label - this is the label display in the windows Explorer program when the CD is insterted. Their is a limit of 32 characters here.

Additional - place any additional autorun commands here from the above Autorun Help web page at MSDN, one command per line please. These will be added to the end of the autorun.inf file.
