5.1 Working Concept of AUTORUN-PROTECTION in WTM Copy Protection
Windows searches the autorun.inf and starts the CD/DVD automatically.
If this file is found, Windows starts the autorun protector. Now autorun
checks to see if burning programs or emulators are active. It also looks
for search setup.exe in the root directory of the CD/DVD. If this not
found, WTM displays a message box with copy protection information and
the CD/DVD stops running.
