I have a program thats called myApp.exe

My inf file is this:

action=Run myApp

The icon works and the label. But it won't show the .exe in the list of options when you plug the USB drive in. Everything is in the root. Any ideas?

Autorun.inf files are handled differently in Windows 7 to improve security. Only removable optical media, i.e. type DRIVE_CDROM, can specify an AutoRun (open) task.

I know it won't actually execute the program. But I just wanted it to appear on the list of options along with things like Import pictures and videos and Open folder to view files. Is this not possible anymore? – Eric Banderhide May 8 '12 at 12:08
That is correct. It will not appear on the list. – iglvzx May 8 '12 at 14:13
