This is a topic that comes up continually on my authorware (e-learning)
developer's forum. As a solution I built a autorun maker custom component
for Adobe Authorware.
I have however also successfully output the component as an executable. It
works for XP but I have not tested yet on vista. I haven't even looked up
what is new/different about autorun in Vista yet.

Send me a note off line and I'll be happy to share the app.
