AutoStart Utility is a fast-launching C-coded application that was created to work with Apple's own autoplay mechanism which is present on most pre-OSX Macs. (OSX does not support autoplay) A CD-ROM mastered with AutoStart Utility specified as the autoplay program, will run AutoStart Utility when the CD-ROM is inserted and add capabilities to Apple's built-in autoplay. The included companion program, DropStart, adds the required autostart information to a Mac volume before it is recorded to CD. AutoStart Utility can search for a prefs file to determine if software is installed and launch an installer if it isn't. AutoStart Utility can launch a document such as a PDF file with its parent app. AutoStart.supports launching document files instead of program files. For instance, you could supply an HTML ".HTM" file with your product and specify that as the file to auto play AutoRun will locate whatever Web browser application is already installed on the user's system to handle ".HTM" files, and launch it with the supplied .HTM file. If you use HTML's "meta refresh" tag within that local HTML file, you can redirect the Webbrowser to an actual site on the Internet.
