  • Saving A website on Autoplay


    I hve a client that wants to have his website on the cd.. I'm really not sure what would be the best way for me to do this.

    The objective would be basically to clone his whole site and have it on a autorun cd so when he send it to a customer he can browse the website without actually being online..

    Can Someone give me a step by step... on exactly what I need to do to accomplish this...

    Thank you.. I really appeciate it.

    First thing to do would be to have all the hyperlinks be local. For example, to go to the next page, instead of the link being "", it would simply be "thispage.html", or "thisfolder\thispage.html". Wherever the file is from the page you linking from, that's where you would tell it to link to. This makes the website mobile, so it can be moved easily. Same as making a link in Autoplay be for "%SrcDir%" instead of "%SrcDrv%". This allows you to run the program (or website) no matter what folder or drive it's running from.

    Once you've done that, then you need to make it autorun. Create a new layout, make it whatever you like, but I would just leave it blank because it's not going to be seen. As a matter of fact, you can set the window to as small as 100x100. Next, go to "Project" then "Settings". Under "Actions", in the "Startup" section, add "Open Document" in the "Execute" section. Make this document the home page of the website. Then, under that, add "Close/Exit" under the "Window" section, this will immediately close out the program, and leave open just the window with the home page of the website. Build it, burn it, and you're good to go.
