    do you mean when any cd is inserted? or you plan on burning a cd with an autorun feature? if its the latter then ya just need to create a file called autorun.inf and inside that file with notepad put the following 2 lines:

    [autorun]
    open=autorun.html

    then put that file and yer html file (called autorun.html) in the root directory of the cd when ya burn it.

        does that actually work with html files? i know it does with applications, but html?

        the way I do it (it's kinda cheating) is i've got a little file called booter.com which is set to autorun, and what that does is opens a file called default.html... that's the reason I didn't think html files would autorun....

          if html files wont autorun then ya should be able to start em using the command:

          [autorun]
          open="explorer autorun.html"


          I've tested this and it works.

                    I've been using WinOpen for this for a long time:
                    http://www.duckware.com/winopen/index.html

                    other solutions are: Starterfile: http://www.autorun.co.uk/autorun/autorun.htm

                    or CD Autorun: http://www.installsite.org/files/autorun102.zip

                    I like Winopen best as its only 3K, but CD Autorun enables you to create professional looking autorun screens with graphical buttons [etc.]
