GETTING STARTED WITH CDFRONTEND
CD FrontEnd allows you to create an autorun / autostart / autoplay CD presentation, a brochure / depliant, a CD business card. You can include on the CD almost anything you want to distribute (PDF documents, ZIP, MP3, Power Point files, your software, the possibilities are endless).
The user simply inserts the CD, then a (possibly) full screen window displays a Web-like presentation. Within this screen you can include buttons or links for launching self extracting EXE files, PDF, ZIP, MP3 or whatever else you might want to include on the CD. These items can be placed anywhere on the CD - and... the program requires no confirmations before installing! On top of all this, you can easily include links to any license agreement or additional information, etc. No hassles, no configuration files, no browsers needed!

Step by step usage:
a) install the program (!)
b) create a temporary folder, say c:\MyTemp
c) run the program and create a presentation document. If you just have to launch a single file, this might be a simple cover page with two images or two links such as:
- click here to start the Wonderful file created with ACME
- click here to install the ACME Viewer (if you don't have it yet)
Within the editor it is very simple to place links to an exe file (or to any other file): select (highlight) a text block or a picture, and use "Insert >Link to external file", "Add" button, "run:afoldername\afilename.exe".
In the picture below we added a link to "mydocument.pdf", a PDF file that we want to show, and to "ar405eng.exe" (assuming this is the name of the self installing Adobe Acrobat Reader, the Viewer for the PDF files)
this means that the CD will contain, in the folder "data" the files "ar405eng.exe" and "mydocument.pdf".
The name of the Adobe Reader file may be slightly different. This file is available at http://www.adobe.com/products/acrobat/readstep.html (please choose Windows95 or 98 as platform, so the CD will run on any PC).
d) should you want the full screen without any top menu, check the relevant check boxes in "Hypertext >Current hypertext properties", "Reader screen" tab (the last tab);
e) Use "File >Create autorun CD in temporary folder...". You will be prompted for a temporary folder that will contain the copy of the CD. Choose the c:\MyTemp you created in step b).
This folder will look like this:
f) Open EasyCD (or Nero, or WinOnCD) and burn the temporary folder into the root of a CD. In the simplest case, the root of the CD will contain the files:
In our sample, the CD will contain also the directory "data", with the files:
g) Close all programs, insert the CD in the drive, and enjoy!!
