How do I make a program start on my usb when you click on it in My Computer?? Answered

I have written a program in vbs and put it on my usb. When you start it it asks you for a password then if you get it right it unlocks some folder if you get it wrong it asks you to return it to a spesifc (can't spell) address. My question is how do I make that program start when you click on the usb in My Computer???

What type of USB is it?  The only USBs that are designed for autorun are U3 USBs, such as the Sandisk Cruiser.  You can get a U3 Universal Customizer and do all of the setup work with the info found here or here.  Note: the download for the U3 Universal Customizer is not there, but you can just google it or get it where he gets it.

 Based on what you have said, your only option is going tto be a autorun.inf.

put this code into a text file, and save as autorun.inf on your flash drive using notepad/wordpad.


You can use this switch if you want to make a custom icon:

Unless autorun is turned off.
But that p/w protection still have to be killed.

It sounds like the flash drive has a built in P/W protection. Open the drive, make sure there are no hidden files and look for a folder with the P/W option, and disable it.
Then put your program on the top level, not in a folder and try that.
