Autoplay errors

I have a flash drive, running the PortableApps Menu on launch. However, when I select the icon, it asks me what program to open with.

First screen: I selected the selected icon.

Second screen: how do I stop this coming up?

My AutoPlay script is as follows:


[Autorun]
Open=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
Action=Start PortableApps
Icon=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
Label=DRS USB

The path for the portable

The path for the portable apps menu is listed twice, its confusing windows.
It should look like this..

[Autorun]
Open=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
Action=Start PortableApps
Icon=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe
Label=DRS USB

No dice...

I've removed the second call to the exe, but it continues to give me the same error. Any ideas?

Can you launch the exe

Can you launch the exe manually?

Seems as if

Windows thinks it's a file.
Try browsing to C:\WINDOWS\explorer.exe in the Open dialog. Might work.

Check your path

You have:

Open=Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe Portable Apps\PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe

And it should be:
Open=PortableApps\PortableAppsMenu\PortableAppsMenu.exe

You listed it twice and had an extra directory in there with a space in it.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
