    I am using Active@ boot disk creator 5.3.3. Can anyone tell me how to start an application automatically when the disk boots up? I add my application on the User's Files tab and my script under the startup scripts tab. The problem I am having is that I do not know which directory the application is put in once I build the iso so that I can point my script to the directory my app is in. Does anyone know which directory the added User's files are added to in the pe image?

    The Active@ Boot Disk drive letter of the CD drive will depend on what partitions are on the HD. So it is likely to be a different drive letter in different computers. Make a CD, boot from the CD and record the drive letter. Edit your startup script and make a second CD.

    Let's say your drive letter is E:
    Then your app will be in E:\User_Files

    What program are you trying to start?

    Edit.... Also, you can count your partitions (on all HDs). If you have 5 partitions then the BootDisk drive letter will be H:
