    Anyone have any experience with putting a static site onto a CD so it will auto run? So the user doesn't have to open the .html file(s) in their browser directly, more of a interactive cd if that makes sense. I think this can be done with flash but we want to try to do it with standard html and css.

    Don't know if it still works this way but we used to just make a little projector or .exe (or both) from a flash file that had a 'get URL' command when it was launched.

    The user just has to double-click the 'launch' file.

    It can definitely be done. Recently a family member got a mini-cd with all their medical information on it, and the MD was amazed because it auto-played via IE.

    Are you looking for something that works on Window, Mac, or both? For windows it's just a matter of creating a auto run inf file. Not sure of anything that works on Mac though. I generally turn off auto open stuff because I consider it a security issue.
