Check out my FREE proxy (http://www.northcode.com/blog.php/2007/08/07/Conquering-FSCommand-EXEC-Part-1-Proxy) utility. It will let you do what you want.

Thanks for the nice page you gift. It is really useful.

Actually I wanted to allow the user to browse the Cd after seeing the presentation so the rest of documents that are not contained in the presentation will be shown in an individual file which will appear to the user after he clicks on the button.

I hope you understand what I meant. so, please help me.
Thanks / best wishes

Since proxy works with BAT files you can put any command you want in the BAT file to do just about anything you want. To show a folder from the CD you would call "explorer.exe" (which is the Windows Explorer, not Internet Explorer). You can do it like this to browse the root folder of the drive the BAT file is on. This will work from a CD or on your desktop if you want to try it before burning a CD.

explorer.exe \

hello northcode
Thank you very much. The problem is solved. There are no more comments to add. just to say you are really genius.

by the way, is this way working in Mac also?

thanks/best regards

On a Mac you can EXEC a compiled AppleScript file instead of a BAT file to do the same thing.
