CD-ROM Distribution Kit

Question:
I would like to distribute my application on CD. The distribution kit I have is on 1.44 disk. Can I get a batch to update my distribution code to have my application on CD, and how can I do an autorun application?

Answer:
The wizard will not build CDs for you, but you can use the 1.44 disk distribution that you have generated on a CD. Copy the directories (disk1, disk2, etc.) onto the CD, and then you need to tell the CD what program to Autorun.

Create a file called autorun.inf in the root directory of the CD, and put the following into it:

[autorun]
open=disk1\setup.exe
icon=disk1\setup.exe,0
You may also want to create a shortcut in the root directory of the CD that points to disk1\setup.exe, in case your user's CD does not know how to autorun a CD.
