Burning tour to CD AGAIN!!

Going to try and visit this subject again. It has been a real pain to me since day one!
I went back and re-read all the post and still no luck.
I purchased AutoRun Pro Enterprise and can't seem to get it to work. I think I'm just not getting the files in the right place. It works in preview but when I burn it to CD it does not work. Been through a dozen CD's today.
I down loaded AutoRunTools (again) and could not get that to work for me.
What am I doing wrong? Can someone suggest another program that is for dummies?

Thanks

Hmm - if its anything like Autorun Pro then this will happen if all you have is a button on your autorun which launches an html file.  What I did to get round that was have that button open another page and have the html file embedded on that page because then you can choose the size of the html window.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, I don't have any buttons or anything. All I do is pop the CD in and it plays automatically but it is utilizing a browser window instead of just a sized box, even if off line.
Any other suggestions? Anyone!

Jerry,

If you are displaying a tour via HTML it has to show via a browser online or off. It is the html page you are displaying and asking 1st Autorun Express to launch.

If you what to display without HTML you will need to use TW5 export to .exe option along with a autorun.inf file.

The .exe though will limit you to PC only where as the HTML version will work on the MAC though the autorun won't work.

Regards, Smooth

Thanks for the info Smooth, I'll play around with TW5 trial version. Not sure yet if it's worth the upgrade.

1st Autorun Express (Free Edition). www.autoruntools.com

Place all files in one folder.
1: Open 1st Autorun Express
2: Browse for your folder (select) then click next
3: Check radio button Launch a single program etc then click next.
4: Browse for your starting .HTML file (select) then click next.
5: Browse and select a icon you would like to use for your .exe and then name your CD (Title) then click finish.
6: Click the Test button. Read the instructions and burn folder "contents" to disc.

Not a bad idea to run all your tests on a CDRW/DVDRW instead of making coasters!

Understand this is just "one" way to achieve this. I mention it because it's free. I'm 100% sure I could get Autorun Pro to work also. Personally I use Autorun Max! or it's big brother Autoplay Media Studio 7.5

Let us know how you get on.

Regards, Smooth

Thanks Smooth I'll try AutoRunTools again.
I just downloaded Autorun Max and can't make heads or tails of it.

Seems like I was missing step #2.
Got it to work, which I knew all along it was something I was doing wrong or not doing at all.
Thanks again smooth.

hey good to know you got this sorted.  I once spent a day shouting at cds that didn't work in my multicopy machine only to find that I hadn't finalised them to work on machines apart from the one they were burned on...

That wasn't a good day in my household. I seemed to lose all my legendary calm and sophistication...

I think I hav this down now but 1 more question....
My tour, from CD, pops up in a browser window even when off line. Is there any way to just make it pop up in a sized box by itself with the 1st autorun express program?
