    This SHOULD work, but I did not try it. Copy and paste the following into Notepad or whatever and save as autostart.ini or autostart.inf. I'm not sure which, but to be on the safe side, put both formats on.

    Heres the code:
    Code:
    [autorun]
    OPEN=[filename].ppt /AUTORUN
    
    That SHOULD work, but if not I am unable to help you any further.
