Well, what software is required to run the files you're including on
the CD? That's one half of your list right there. Get the list of
software needed, and then look up their tech requirements, and bingo
bango, you have your hardware requirements.

Thanks to those of you that responded to my question about
autorunning/autostarting a marketing CD I'm working on.

Another task I have is to develop hardware/software requirements needed
to run the CD. We plan on including this on the CD jacket. For
example, we plan on stating that PCs must have Windows XP or Windows
2000 on it. Another requirement is to mention what software is needed
to view the CD. Isn't Windows Media Player automatically included on
Windows XP & 2000? Is there a Mac equivalent? What are other
applications (Windows & Mac) can be used to view an autorun/autostart
CD? Has anyone created a similar hardware/software requirements list
that was included with a CD.
