Will not auto start?

Hi;
I had an old version (v10) on a smaller flash drive,
I wanted to update to a larger drive.
I copied every thing over to new drive then ran portable apps 11.2 to install/update it on same drive.
Now the PA will not auto-start when drive is plugged in.
Autorun is in the root and contains the following
" [Autorun]
Icon=PortableApps\PortableApps.com\App\Graphics\usb.ico
Label=PortableApps.com"

What if anything is the problem and how do I fix it.

TIA
PS
plugging old drive into comp PA auto-starts.

Removed, Security Risk

We removed the Open= line quite a while back as support for autoplay prompts using autorun.inf was removed from Windows XP/Vista over 2 years ago (IIRC) and never included in Windows 7/8. This is to prevent the spread of USB based malware. All up-to-date Windows machines have it disabled now. If your machine is allowing it, please check and ensure you have all available updates applied.

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