html based autorun cd page
I have macromedia dreamweaver mx, and the tools to create the autoplay part the page, but don't know how to do certain aspects of creating the page
There's bound to be some easy way to do this.
What I'm trying to do is make the access page's links be able to be altered to match a hyperlink to whatever letter the drive that the CD is on.
Obviously, if you design a page assuming that everyone's CD drive is D, for people who have other drive letters, like, say F, it won't work. I'm trying, through either a form or through a code that will automatically look up whatever the letter the CD is in and adapt the hyperlinks accordingly
Obviously, it should be fairly simple to have a readme come up after installing whichever parts the person chooses, but of course, the hyperlink depends on the drive letter.
Also on the page would be links to the various installation files (which the user would install one-by-one (for simplicity of programming), just by clicking on what they want)...like say, depending on what they have installed, they can install just the components they do not already have installed to view the content on the CD (a pretty hardcore-enhanced power point, plus some other power points quite a bit simpler in nature)...the hardcore one has 3-D transitions, and I have everything set up so that no matter what computer setup the person has, it can work for them (like I have AVI files as individual slides instead of having the 3-D transition program do it, in the event that their computer doesn't support hardware acceleration or they don't have administrator rights.)
I've got everything planned out except how to get this html page that will have the links to the various setup files. Of course, to supplement the links to the setup files, I would have explanatory material regarding what the various programs do and who would need them based on their computer setup, etc.
If this isn't easily accomplished, I can live without having the html autorun page, but it would be pretty cool if I could
I need to have this project done by first thing Thursday morning (I can work through the night Wednesday, of course), but I've gotta give it to the teacher because all the teachers leave on Thursday for summer break (school computers have pretty much no capability for web design, and my ride to school has to be in the morning, like regular school time, so I can't just work on it some Thursday & go see the teacher whenever I'm done
Thanks for your help in advance, guys
