[debian-knoppix] Re: Suggestion for a cleaner windows autorun

Starting with Win2k, the autorun.inf could directly say
"shellexecute=index.htm", but that would not work with any
earlier OS.

That's what many cdroms do, among which microsoft's.
I doubt Klaus would inclure *their* binary launcher, though.
Anyway this is not less secure than the bat/start approach.

That was meant under windows, with mingw installed
(see http://www.mingw.org).
It should also be possible to cross-compile under linux,
but I have never done that myself; maybe this would help:
