The homepage is kind of necessary because it connects you other .pdf files and such. I'll take a screenshot so you can visualize this. Because, I'm sure I'm confusing the hell out of you.

You're not.

So, this means that if we can't find the file this flash menu is using to know where to look for the setup file, then this could get more complicated, and it'll probably be way out of my league as I don't know how to program.

Does it find the other files the way you want them to?

Ok, so that gray bar down the "middle" is like a menu. Then the buttons on there take you to different things. The other things work, just the setup for this program you can install from the homepage doesn't work.

I'm gonna sound like a jerk for saying this, but it's the truth and I can't help it: I really didn't need a screenshot. I believe that they all pretty much work the same way.

I'm gonna do a little bit of research using a setup cd that I know uses macromedia flash.

haha don't feel like a jerk, I kind of got the impression you didn't want one, but if anyone else wants one, there it is.

I appreciate you trying to help

That's it. Now, menu.exe...opens the flash "homepage" then you can click a link which connects you to the setup executable. then you get the error message saying 'setup cannot find the specified path name "c:application data" A,R,I'
I might be on to something. Okay, I already knew this, but I'll tell you anyway: Menu.exe is in the root directory of the CD, so that means if your cd-rom drive is E, then it's e:\\Menu.exe. So, it's possible the files I'm about to discuss are in this same place.

I'm looking for some .ini files. For my old Sound Blaster Audigy 2 ZS setup cd, there's a very similar thing going on. The menu has links to the setup files. It's autorun says:

[autorun]
open=CTRun\\Start.EXE
icon=CTRun\\audigy.ico

So, I navigated to F:\\CTRun\\Start.EXE, and thanks to their naming scheme, I found these two files:

CTRUN.INI
START.INI

These two files make references to setup files. CTRUN.INI is too big to copy and paste, but START.INI is simple:

[CTConfig]
CTOEM = ..\\Audio\\Setup\\CTOem.cfg

[Launch]
EXE = ..\\Setup.EXE

In the CTRUN.INI files, there are 22 places where I found references to .EXE files by using ctrl+f in Notepad and searching for ".exe".


If you edit these to reflect the way you want it to be according to your directory structure, it should work. But again, the attributes are currently read-only since they came off a cd, so that has to be changed.

Wow, I didn't think this would be so fun. I really am having fun. lol (ok, I need a life! hehe)

Exactly. It's like... I want my job to be working on computers in this way. It's perfect for my brain.

But anyway, I really hope that I'm right. If not, we may need to rent a programmer to make a new menu.
