To be totally honest I don't see the point, in 99.999% of CDs I've ever seen autorun starts some
file in the root folder of the CD (start.exe, setup.exe, install.exe, runme.exe, in any case
something obvious) and the CD usually comes with instructions telling you which one to run, so I
don't see why one would look in the autorun.inf file in the first place, or run the cd with your
program, when they could run the right exe directly. So your program would only be useful if it
worked like the real autorun, pulled the CD drive every second or so, and automatically read the
CD's autorun.inf and started the appropriate exe. Many people (including me) would find that
annoying, but I guess it's a windows feature some people may like.
