Ok i am working on an cd for keeping al my share and freeware....So that i can install when needed.
Now i know a way to start and html page when the cd is loaded in the player.
But how do i start .exe or .com files from the html file?
I did something before but i completely forgot how to do this.
Somebody just clicks on a link or a button and the program should start.
The htmlpage should not close with this action.

Well, the simplest way is through an ordinary link "<a href="C:\Program\folder\folder\app.exe">startIt</a>"
which will kick open the box "save or run", then just click run and that's it.

ok...that's ugly...
Then i better dump al the proggies to the cd and open the cd with explorer...

There should be a neat way to do this.
Maybe with stylesheets or javascript.
Like this:
Position mouse on progam name ----> Description of program shows
Click on program name ----> start program

ok after an extensive search i found this site
and there i saw this text.

quote:
HTML Autoplay

This CD autorun application uses Internet Explorer embedded in a dialog to display HTML pages. It uses a simple ini file to direct the embedded browser to the autorun homepage and uses a custom HREF protocol to handle ShellExecuteEx commands to perform things like printing, launching readmes, and executing applications. These custom HREF commands are configured and defined in the self-documented autoplay.ini file. It was developed on Win2000, VC6, SP3 and requires IE4+ on the user's machine in order to function.

Notes:

* Clicking on the "Install Application" link in the included sample will generate an error, because no "Setup.exe" file is included. The link is just there to give you the idea without increasing the download size.
* Internet Explorer 4 or above must be installed on end user's machine, otherwise the autorun application will fail.

Well, if you settle for IE only you can use VBScript...
This example opens M$Word plus a file that you specify.

you should be able to adapt it, work with "Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")" to the application that you want to open.
Just play around with it and see what it does, ok.

code:
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBScript>
<!-- This in an activeX way of opening a file outside of your browser-->
Dim objWord
Sub Btn1_onclick()
call OpenDoc("this/is/your/http/or/file/path/to/your/document.doc")
End Sub

Sub OpenDoc(strLocation)

Set objWord = CreateObject("Word.Application")
objWord.Visible = true
objWord.Documents.Open strLocation
End Sub

</SCRIPT>
<TITLE>Launch Word</Title>
</HEAD>
<BODY>
<INPUT TYPE=BUTTON NAME=Btn1 VALUE="Open Word Doc">
</BODY>
</HTML>
