I wish to use
autorun.inf on a CD so that it auto-plays an installation package.
But I know that anti-virus software doesn't like
autorun.inf files. How can I use an
autorun.inf file without upsetting anti-virus software?
Antivirus have no problem with
autorun.inf files... antivirus have problem with what is inside the
autorun is disabled on flash drives because Malware embeds itself on them pretty easy. But you can use
autorun on a CD like normal.
Use Microsoft Guidelines on how to populate an autorun.
Using things like regedit, disabling UAC and other administration type actions will be flagged as suspicious by most anti virus scanners...
Virus scanners and alike should have no problems with the
autorun.inf on a CD.
Windows and third party applications alike usually limit themselves to blocking
autorun.inf on memory cards, flash drives, etc.
