The original SETUP.EXE (AutoRun) of Windows XP displays useless links.

I always wanted to install some basic apps (NET, WMP, etc...) on some computer.

With StartCD.exe, and being flexible, now I can do that.

The attached RAR archive contains 5 files:


2- BACK.bmp


4- StartCD.exe

5- StartCD.INI

Assuming you've copied your Windows XP CD to your harddisk;

to use StartCD.exe effectively, do the following:

1- Delete Setup.exe and AUTORUN.INF from the root of your Windows XP CD.

2- Put those 5 files in the root of your CD.

3- Set the attributes of them to Hidden, except StartCD.exe!

BACK.bmp is the bigger picture shown in the background.

DATAPANE.BMP is the smaller picture shown in the small box to the right.

StartCD.INI controls and configures what appears when you run StartCD.exe!

My StartCD.INI contains good examples for installing apps right from the CD.

Everything in StartCD.INI is in English.

Edit StartCD.INI to reflect your apps and their paths!

You can test your work, prior to burning, by manually running StartCD.exe!

You can do a more tidied job by putting both BACK.bmp and DATAPANE.BMP

inside $OEM$, then edit the following lines in StartCD.INI to reflect the

path to them:

Image=%STARTDIR%\Back.bmp --Change--To--> Image=%RootDir%\$OEM$\Back.bmp

Image=%STARTDIR%\DataPane.bmp --Change--To--> Image=%RootDir%\$OEM$\DataPane.bmp

As you may have already guessed, $OEM$ is not the only choice. Actually, you

can put both BMPs anywhere on your CD. Just remember to edit StartCD.INI!

NB 1: The BMPs will not be copied to your HDD when installing Windows from this CD!

NB 2: Windows logo by WolfX2.

@ all

Glad you liked them.

@ owikh84

I just thought you meant that the autorun to appear this way.


Actually, I made this to go with this WINNTBBU!

Since I've got Royale Noir and a black LOGONUI, I'm now satisfied with black shades on my screen!

NB: I'll post this black autorun with the same options as previous ones plus another one for owikh84 with his wanted options if he just confirms it.

If your CD keeps the same original structure, you DON'T need to edit the attached


This Autorun contains the same commands as the original Setup.exe of Windows XP.

I'm saying that because (as you can see, below) some commands require files from

the root of the CD (setupxp.htm and readme.htm).

Some other commands require files from the TOOLS directory (msrdpcli.exe and fastwiz.exe).

sysocmgr.exe is run from your current system.

Since it's located as %windir%\system32\sysocmgr.exe, we don't need to include

the path to it because "system32" is a predefined path.

However, if you include the path, it will not work, eh!

Again, I'm quoting these strings here for you to adjust the path to files if you ONLY happen to re-locate files on your original CD.

This one is inspired by IE 7 setup screens.

I hope you like it!

Hi Mazin,

Can you explain for what those text's are used for?

[ C m d E r r o r ] 
F N F = F i l e n o t f o u n d
P N F = P a t h n o t f o u n d
A c c e s s D e n i e d = A c c e s s D e n i e d

P N F S o l n = C h e c k t o m a k e s u r e t h a t t h i s p a t h i s a c c e s s i b l e .

R e t r y B u t t o n T e x t = & R e t r y
C a n c e l B u t t o n T e x t = & C a n c e l

Looks like that some parts are in "German" for me, and i didn't understand where thoses text parts are supposed to show - the other part are all right - I had 100% lucky change it from English to Portuguese Brazil.

Thanks a Lot - My CD looks really cool now.

@ Martin L

Thank you for your organization.

@ Neo - Matrix

Those lines of text are messages fired on their respective occasions.

@ nfiniteFX

Nice one, indeed.

EDIT: Re-uploaded. I forgot AUTORUN.INF!
