Autolaunch of swf file from CD

Nov 27, 2007 8:52 AM

Is there a way to burn a swf file to a dvd/cd and have the swf file automatically launch when the cd is inserted into the computer? If so, can anyone tell me how to do this?

    create a file called autorun.inf with notepad and with this in the document.

    No no, first publish the SWF as a Projector file first see Publish Settings
    in Flash. This way the Flash Player is already built-in into the exe along
    with SWF, so your users will not be required to have the Flash plug-in.

    Hope this helps.

    A projector is fine but is a problem when trying to open a popup link. To get around that, I just use the autorun to open the swf. How can you make a call to open the swf in internet explorer? Something like:

    open=start iexplore.exe %cdrom%/main.swf

    That should work, as you can start iexplore.exe as well as start iexplore.exe c:\main.swf
    However, XP no longer uses %cdrom%. I've tried just doing:

    open=start iexplore.exe main.swf

    This kicks an error. Any ideas? Remember, the goal is for the autorun to launch main.swf into IE. I've even tried autorunning a batch file that detects the cdrom and uses that to open the swf. This also kicks an error from cd, but is fine when run locally (w/the cd in).

    Hello there - Im hitting a similar problem for a non-web deployed flash monster & hoping you could help if you are still active on the forum?
