    Opening a PDF document on a CD with Autorun

    mindforge

      Hi,

       

      I can open my PDF document using a simple autorun.inf command as follows:

       

      [autorun]
      shellexecute=D:\documentname.pdf

       

      But, the path only works on my computer. If I insert the CD into another computer and the drive name is different it obviously does not work. I have tried using a relative path like this:

       

      [autorun]
      OPEN=\documentname.pdf

       

      But that did not seem to work.

       

      Question:

       

      Is there a character limit to the length of the PDF file name I'm trying to open? Or, is my attempt to create a relative path name wrong?

       

      I want to send the CD to someone and have it open automatically to the PDF (there are about a dozen other PDF documents on the CD that the main one links to). So, I want to make it easy for them to go right to the main one.

       

      Thanks,
