my problem is that the file autorun.inf which contains the line OPEN=programname.exe does work when i take the name in one word however OPEN = Click ME!.exe will result in an error click.exe not found how do you allow spaces in autorun.inf ?

The autorun arguments do not need to be enclosed. It would appear to me that they simply do not allow file names to have spaces. I do not believe I have ever seen a program with a space in the .exe name. Try replacing the space with an underscore or removing it altogether. You should find it will work then.


If at first you don''t succeed, call it version 1.0

Windows deficiency. The "standard" solution is to escape whitespace characters, eg Click\ Me!.exe
