    I have been trying to get a program to run when I plug my thumb drive into my windows XP computer. I wrote the autorun.inf like this:
    both autorun.exe and autorun.inf were placed in the root of the drive also.
    does anybody know why it won't work?

    Although i don't think that will give you your desired result. Looks Autorun is not supported in XP for security reasons.
