Asset tag app

I don't know of any apps in existence that will do what I want. In the case that I lose my drive and someone finds it, I would like a simple app that is prominently displayed on the menu (perhaps as part of the menu itself) that gives the owner's contact info (phone, email, address) so the drive can be returned. I would even be satisfied if I could place a shortcut on the apps menu to a text file on the drive containing my contact info. I currently have said text file in the root folder of my drive, hoping that anyone who plugged it in would see it (it's simply named "If found read this"). Thanks.

Use NSIS

I really dont know much about writing programs, but I did play around for a day with NSIS and you can write an exe that shows a message box. It has a sample script to where you just change their text with yours. I'm sure that if you can't figure out how to do this, someone here can do it for you.

Here:
OutFile "Name.exe"
Section
MessageBox MB_OK "Name: Whatever $\n Address: Whatever $\n Phone: Whatever"
SectionEnd

I could make an app that read these values from an INI...

sure?

What would it look like? I don't know anything about programming. I'm simply an end user.
