I have created an application and copied on to CD. I was wondering how to set up this CD so that it starts the application as soon as we put CD into CD drive ?
Any ideas ?

Are you looking to setup the Windows side of it? Then here's some info, adapted from Windows 98 Help.
To make CDs play automatically when inserted in the CD drive
  1. Open the System Properties dialog box at the Device Manager tab.

  2. Click the plus sign next to CDROM, right-click the device you want to use, and then click Properties.

  3. Click the Settings tab.

  4. Select the Auto insert notification check box.


  5. Notes
    • You can open the System Properties dialog box by clicking Start, pointing to Settings, clicking Control Panel, and then double-clicking System.
    • This setting applies to all CDs, including games, multimedia, and audio CDs.
    • To prevent CDs from playing automatically, click to clear the Auto insert notification check box. You can also press the SHIFT key while inserting a CD to stop it from playing automatically.

On the CD itself, you need a special file. I think it's called autorun.bat.
