Autorun Action Splash (formerly Autorun Action Flash) allows you to easily autorun/ autoplay your CDs. When the CD-ROM is inserted your image will be displayed on screen in the location of your choosing, while the software launches your command. A number of possibilities are available with the command, including:
The software is simple to set up, requiring only a few settings, and the included Wizard guides you through this process. The image can be any size or dimension. You can set the length of time the image should remain on-screen, and when the command is launched (beginning, middle, or end of time). You can also have the image animate should you wish to, with settings to control the speed and animation style. You can have any number of images to animate through, and the new Setup Wizard can even create attractive and professional animations using your image!
For more advanced users more sophisticated features have also been included. This includes the ability to use commandline arguments. This allows advanced users to launch programs with specific parameters or files passed to them. With the addition of a CD-Drive variable to pass the correct Drive letter in commandline arguments, this program is also well suited to advanced users who wish to do such things as autorun a specific file on the CD in a functional viewer from the CD, quickly and without installation on the user's system!
The software also allows you the option to include installable viewers on the CD! If the end-user does not have a viewer for the document you are opening, the software will automatically prompt the user with your message and the option to install the viewer from your CD. All you have to do is provide the viewer for your document!
For making your Autorun/ Autoplay application, the application comes complete with its own Splash Wizard which takes you step by step through the set-up process. When completed the Wizard saves the settings so you can edit them later or compile your Splash application.
Autorun Action Splash Wizard
The splash image which is shown when your CD is inserted is a bitmap which you provide. It's up to your imagination! You can show your artistic talents in something like Photoshop, take a section of a digital photo, or simply type some text in Windows Paint. You can even create transparent areas very easily by coloring sections of your image a particular color. The option is up to you.
(included in download)
The software comes with the sample splash above. But remember, it's totally up to you what the splash screen for your Autorun CD-ROM looks like, it can be any size or dimensions.
