I am trying to make a front end for a cd-rom, but I can't figure out how to get it to install programs from the directory. I get to the execute program and then I am lost on the target, command , and working directory.How do I tell it where the directory and install file is?

Please help!!!! Thanks, budbandit

To execute programs, open documents etc, AutoPlay Menu Studio must be able to locate your file. This is where the %SrcDrv% variable comes in very useful. When you menu is executed, it returns the drive letter that the menu is being run from, such as D:

So, to execute a file "prog.exe" that will be located on your CD in the folder "Progs", you would set the action target to "%SrcDrv%\Progs\prog.exe".

For more information on this, refer to the User's Guide chapter titled "Setting Actions". This should get you going!
