Autorun file for a CD or DVD

December 2016


I want to make an autorun file for a cd or dvd ! Can anybody help me to do so please?


  • You open notepad
  • now you write: [autorun]

Now save it but not as a .txt file but as a .inf file.
But remember! The "Setup_filename.EXE" MUST be replaced with the name of the setup file. And you also need to remember that it is not all of the setup files there are called '.exe but some are called '.msi
  • Now burn your CD with the autorun .inf file included.
  • Now set the CD in you CD drive and wait for the autorun to begin or if nothing happens just double-click on the CD drive.
