So the users can not create and start a program when this tools are working in background. Illegal images can not mount of known emulator tools. Program show a selected message and break.

The second field (Check OK) must be changed, because it is a security risk to use the default variable for standard files. Use any other variable in its place. Your program should check the variable such that it starts with this parameter only.

When you click on Save, you will see 3 files in the folder that you have selected:
Autorun.inf - This file is the auto start for your CD. You need not start it on your CD, when you do not want an autostart.
imp.dat - This file has information related to setup.exe
Setup.exe - This is the autorun program. It checks if burning programs, emulators etc. have started correctly.

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.
