autorun.inf frustrations
I've created a huge presentation in PowerPoint that I want to burn onto a CD. Along with a million other people, I'd really like to utilize the Autorun feature in Windows. I combed the web and found the syntax, but when I try to use it, my computer always asked for bogus executable files. My first question is: Will "open=whatever.pps" work, or does this statement only work with .exe files? My second question is: Why is my computer asking for files like TABLE.exe and AIR.exe? Can this be corrected? I've tried your tips in the Tips and Trix section, but I can't a floppy to work either. Anyway, I'll show you what I have.

[autorun]
open=table of contents.pps

Thanks a ton for any information you might be able to provide. I really appreciate it.

Re: autorun.inf frustrations
I don't think that...

[autorun]
open=table of contents.pps

...is going to work. My guess is you'll need a cd front-end executable. This exe would run the PowerPoint Viewer program and open the .PPT file you're asking for.

[autorun]
open=myprog.exe

If you were trying to use your example on the floppy autorun it wouldn't work. Start an executable and it'll work.
