PowerPoint ( 97) Presentation needs to A

By bstroh ·
I know it can be done because I have seen it when I have received CD presnetations from other companies. I need to make this presentation auto start for a show presentation. Once I manually start it the presnetation runs on its own. I want be able to pop the cd in a drive and have the presentation just start. Like when you put a music CD in your drive and the player opens and the music starts playing.
Please Can anyone help me to do this?

Thank you

CD's use the information in a file called autorun.inf to start automatically, but I believe it will only run .exe or .com files, so you would either need to find a way to compile your .pps file, or use a third-party program like starterfile available at http://www.trah.co.uk/starterfile/welcome.htm.

Try as I may try as I might and yes I finally figured out what I was doing wrong. Not INI file INF file...Thank you for your help and I went to that sight and checked out the program. May make the investment.
Thanks for your input.
