create autorun CDs 1st AutoRun Express provides a simple wizard interface to create auto-starting CDs. All you need to do is select the folder with the documents, and one or more files that you want to be launched when the CD is inserted. A Pro version is available that lets you create a CD menu that allows the user to select a file or programs to launch (You can use the CD menu feature as part of the free version, but the created menu will only run on the PC it was created with.)

Feature limited trial version 2 stars by Shaggy May 14, 2009 (Read all my 15 reviews)
This program LOOKS great, but you should definitely consider it to be a "feature limited trial version" of the non-free program. The SnapFiles description says it all, in that any menu you create will only work on the PC that it was created on, which is nearly useless, except for testing purposes. If I were reviewing the non-free version, I'd give this 4 or 5 stars in a heartbeat, because it's a very useful, intuitive, and powerful tool for creating clean autorun menus that look professional. I'd say it's a bit of a cheap trick to offer this as freeware, but then again, maybe a trick that works. I'd recommend this as a look, but don't fool yourself into thinking this is a great piece of freeware, because it falls short. show Review details
Perfect program - does exactly what it says! 5 stars by JURYCOM Nov 10, 2005 (Read all my 43 reviews)
This is a great program. The GUI works perfectly. It is not only intuitive, the author thought through some steps and provided solutions. For example, it asks if you wish to use an alternative icon and then guides you through selection of the particular icon you want from your own store of icons. The steps were reduced to the bare minimum and the program set in a quiet state while I arranged some of my files and folders to accommodate the steps. The author of this program got it exactly right and by doing so allowed me to get it exactly right the first time. The idea here is simply to locate a folder and an index.htm page (or other file) that you want to use to show the reader, or listener, of your CDRom, then the folder where everything it to be located. Finally, the program then creates in that folder all of the operating files needed to the CDRom auto-run. The last step is just to burn all of the files in that folder onto your CDRom. Cool and Effective. show Review details
