I would like my Install to launch automatically from CD. I believed this to be the job of the target system, but I've seen software launch from my CD-ROM. The files I have to Install are relatively uncomplicated. How have I gone wrong? This seems like it should be so simple. Could it be the VC++ version of InstallShield?

You can find some information here on InstalLSite under Related Tools -> CD Autorun and Setup Launchers. Basically you need to put a autorun.inf file in the root directory of your cd (his is a text file in INI format)
