AutoView is an Autorun program for use on CD/ CDR. This software is designed to add convenience and professionalism to the CDs you create by having them automatically launch a selected file after CD insertion. AutoView comes with a short wizard to create the Autorun program for your CDs. Simply copy the two files the wizard creates to your CD, along with your own files, and your done. Its that simple!
AutoView can be used to open any file type in the users designated viewer. If no recognized viewer is found for the specified document then the software can prompt the user with a list of installable viewers (from the CD). For example, when creating an Autorun CD with a HTML interface, where the CD's contents are browsed via web pages in the user's browser, AutoView can be set to Autorun the index page. In the event the user does not have a browser installed on their system, AutoView will detect this. If the CD author opted to provide a number of browser installation files on the CD, AutoView will provide the user the option to install the browser of their choice.
Other cases where installable viewers may be useful are Adobe Acrobat documents (PDF), ZIP archive CDs, MS PowerPoint presentation CDs, formatted text documents, the list goes on...
The title and text for the installer can be anything you wish, the title might be "Viewer Required...", the viewer name, company of the CD author etc. The installable viewers list is fully editable with any number of viewers possible.
The Set-up Wizard takes you through a few simple steps to setting up the software for your CD. For CD authors who do not require an installation menu, AutoView is effectively a one-step process! The Set-up Wizard can also load up the current settings for quick and easy changing of the programs set-up. After completion of the Wizard, simply write the two files the Wizard automatically created for you (which includes the Autorun.inf file) to the base of the CD and your CD will Autorun. Step 1 of the Set-up Wizard's interface screen is shown below:
