Multimedia projects are wonderful because they are so visual. But what do you do when the presentation is to be distributed on a CDROM – burn file(s) to CDROM and distribute?

Here is an example from a recent project where I developed a simple UI (user interface) application that launches when the CDROM is inserted.

– The background is the PowerPoint Title slide layout for a coordinated look.
– The Play button opens the presentation from the CDROM
– The Install button runs a custom scripted installer that creates a folder on computer, copies files to folder, adds shortcuts to the presentation on the desktop and start menu, and finally includes an uninstaller that deletes all the files.
– The Exit button closes the UI.

Overall, a pretty basic project. But it adds a professional initial look to your distributed presentation.
