Please read the note from our friends in legal before using this file.

Copy the executable into sys:public or other suitable directory in the path and add the following line to the loginscript or application startup script:
#exist d:\autorun.inf

This will check if the file d:\autorun.inf exists. If the file exists it will return an ERROR_LEVEL of "0", non-zero otherwise.

You can use this in a creative way to give ZENworks 2-like qualities to ZEN1.x:

#F:\public\exist.exe E:\adobe\eurofont.exe
if ERROR_LEVEL!="0" then begin
#F:\public\box.exe 36;Error!;You need to insert the CD marked"Adobe" to run this program
TERM "0"

As usual I take no responsibility for what you do with this program. Comments are welcome, address them to dalton@pedago.fi.

New in Version 1.0a:

Fixed some issues with long paths on Win2000 and 98SE.
