Our individual workstations do not have CD drives. We install all of our software from the file server CD drive. Normally, I just find the Setup or Autorun file & am able to install software to the individual workstations.

I am trying to install some new software to the workstations, but when I click on Autorun nothing happens. I can't find a Setup file on the CD. Is there a way to force the installation to start when Autorun doesn't work?

Is the autorun file a .exe file or a .inf?

If its a .inf open it in notepad.
Find the line

OPEN=XXXXXX.EXE

The part after the = is the setup/installation file that you should find on the CD and run.
