I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post or not...

With the help of the internet, I've figured out how to sort-of autorun a presentation from a flash drive. I've made it so that when the window pops up asking what action should be taken, the first option is the play the presentation I've made. However, I was wondering if there is a way to just automatically make the presentation play without the viewer needing to click OK. Is there a no-click version?

Here's what I have in my autorun file:

[autorun]
label=Chase Design Group
icon=Runme.exe

action=Run Presentation
open=PPTVIEW.EXE /L "playlist.txt" /lz /q /a /m /e

Then I have another file called Playlist that looks like this:

CDG-FlashPres.ppt

Thanks!

This may help - From http://www.autorun.c...cumentation.htm:

Example - autorun a Powerpoint show called start.pps
Edit autorun.inf and replace start.htm with start.pps so it looks like this:

[autorun]
open=starterfile.exe start.pps


Write autorun.inf, starterfile.exe and start.pps to the root directory of the CD.

Powerpoint show files play the presentation without the user needing to do anything.
Alternatively, use PowerPoint's "Save as Web page" option and then autorun a .htm file.
