View Full Version : Simple CD ROM with autorun and installation to access files

February 28th, 2011, 01:32 AM
Hello there,
I want to create a CD-ROM to go with a school textbook. There will be lots of (Word) files (with exercises) for the teachers to open, edit, etc. I want to create a simple GUI to open those files. I want the CD and all its files to be installable (on Windows), with an icon on the desktop to open the GUI.
I want this to work for Windows because that's what all the teachers and schools have. However, I use Ubuntu, which is why I'm here.
The only 'programming' experience I have is with javascript and PHP.

To try to get started at least on a GUI, I've installed Qt Designer and Glade Interface Designer, but of course, I have no idea what I'm doing.

Where should I start to do this?
Any help would be much appreciated.

You probubly want build Windows software on a Windows Machine. AUTORUN.INF is the instruction file for autorun in windows. You can google that to start.

I was hoping I wouldn't need to actually do the work on Windows.
