I am asking for assistance with a problem. I have an ins file, Its for the internet connection wizard setup. I want to put the dialup.ins file on a CD and have autorun when the CD is put in the drive!

The dialup.ins file works on a floppy,It works from the hard drive, but i cant seem to get it to open from a CD

I tried making autrun files but keep getting a error message that states the internet connection wizard is unable to process the file!

as i stated ealier the file opens from the hard drive,floppy disk but not the cd.

any help would be apreciated

thank you

I think the only programs autorun will open are .exe, and .com.

You create a .exe file that will run a ShellExec and open the dialin.ins

I am pretty sure luke_s suggestion will work fine. I have never tried with .ins files, but sometimes I call explorer.exe with a file I want opened as command line. This normally correctly invokes the application that is set up to handle that file type. But either way, an EXE file that runs ShellExecute would be the better solution.

.ins files run with ISIGNUP.EXE, so try
OPEN=isignup.exe dialup.ins  
ICON= ...
