|A recent security update from Microsoft disabled autorun functionality from write media such as USB drives. It should work from a CD however.|
But the same Autorun.inf is working fine for Windows vista and its not working for XP and windows 7 alone.
I guess that windows 7 by default focus no option when ever we launch any exe to run, may that could be the reason why it is not launching during autorun because he will follow up the NO option and quit.
Is there any other reason behind this XP and windows 7.
I have to provide proper reason and proof for this, to convince reg disabled autorun functionality in USB.
Please help me if you know any web site reg this.

Do all your test systems have all the latest Microsoft updates installed? And you didn't modify the default autorun behaviour?
