    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

    New in Version 1.0a:
