Autorun.inf doesn't open file in internet browser

\015 I have files located on a flash drive and want the default.htm file to automatically open in a browser window each time the flash drive is inserted in a USB port. How can I accomplish this task? I created an 'autorun.inf' file:\015\012\015\012[autorun]\015\012OPEN=notice\\ShelExec Default.htm\015\012[autorun.x86]\015\012OPEN=notice\\ShelExec Default.htm\015\012\015\012although it doesn't seem to work.\015\012Any help will be appreciated.\015

Hello ksharp628,

I use a program called autorun.exe One limitation of the standard AutoRun facility is the fact that it will only run\011\011\011executable programs; it will not by itself open document files such as web\011\011\011pages or text files. AutoRun.exe is designed to circumvent this restriction:\011\011\011it will open any number of document files or start executable programs. Moreover,\011\011\011it is smart enough to use a sensible fall-back strategy if no documents can\011\011\011be opened, perhaps because the target system does not have the required support\011\011\011for those document types.

example of my autorun.inf
[autorun]
open=autorun.exe msn.html
action=Run MSN.com
icon=msn.ico

in root of thumb drive I have Autorun.exe Autorun.inf MSN.html and my ICON msn.ico wich i did a search for on my computer

I hade t make and msn.html

my edited msn.html file open in txt format
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=http://www.msn.com">

You can replace with what ever website you want and rename it to that.

This autrun.inf setup will popup the autrun box and ask you pick an option. this is as close to running the webpage when inserting the usb drive. The program comes with a .pdf on many options wich can be used with autorun.exe.

the link to the autrun.exe program is found below.

Hope this helps you, take care.
