I missed the original post, but I have created a front end for a CD
The CD is our "Resource CD", which includes software we offer for
free, our product literature, and manuals. I use DemoShield to
launch the installations of the software directly, and for the literature
and manuals (in PDF format), I launch a PDF. That PDF has links to
the others. (Actually, there are several "first level" PDFs -- one for
literature, one for manuals, one for technical notes, one for ap
notes... that are essentially TOCs to the other documents).
This works well for our uses.
DemoShield offers an evaluation version on their web site.
