Need halfway elegant substitute for autorun on HTML-driven CD
Numerous posts tell me autorun is heavily restricted in Windows 7 for removable media. Despite what I see -- saying itís only blocked for USB drives -- it doesn't automatically open CDs for us either.
For years we've produced CDs for public consumption (info on publicly funded construction projects), and were able to have a CD's index.htm file open automatically upon insertion, by including SHELLOUT.EXE and the 2-line AUTORUN.INF that points shellout to the index file (open=shellout index.htm).
The index.htm file is basically just a simple page with links to a few dozen PDFs -- no executables or other potential malware or funny stuff. Is there some other non-clumsy way to automatically open this file? Much of our audience is not PC-savvy, so the no-brains-required feature that opened index page has been a big help for them.
