Okay, so just yesterday i started making my own virus rescue dvd, but i need help with some auto run features.
Is there a way to make it so when you put the dvd into the drive, it automatically launches a program without user interaction?
(its probably really obvious and when i registered i accidentally clicked intermediate instead of begginer) Please help me!:confused::confused::confused:

Modern Windows disables the autorun feature that you are looking for.

It was disabled in an update from Microsoft since Windows XP due to the risk of malware running.

i searched on how to enable it, someone says a certain registry key will do it, is it legit or is it just an autoplay setting i have to set.

Check the date of the advice that you found - it is unlikely to work IMO, but you didn't show us the link.

I don't think what you're asking about is autoplay but rather boot sequence.

Most rescue CDs will boot on most machines. Have you tried it? There may be some user interaction required in order to select the media you wish to boot from.

If not you may have to change the boot sequence in the BIOS/UEFI.
