    Default Autorun for USB

    Hello everyone,
    I'm tryingto run a exe file on my usb when I plug it into the computer. Autorun doesn't work on windows 7 on usb sticks...

    Has anyone got a suggestion.

    It's only for one usb stick.


    Thanks, Keyboard1333

    Have you tried removing the files (temporarily) and formatting it. Then put all files back on it and try again.

    That won't help with the problem I specified.

    You could use a U3 Sandisk card.

    I've already got the usb I want to do it with... I'd prefer to not have to go and buy anything...

    P.s. What's a U3 Sandisk card?

    it's a flash drive that has a Windows launcher/documents application integrated. AFAIK, they're no longer produced. I've got three or four of those drives (bought before I realized what they were), and they were nothing but trouble for me... never worked, impossible to uninstall, constant popup notifications/updates/driver installs.

    my understanding was that autorun was actually disabled on purpose, as a security risk. I found a couple conversations on the subject, including this one, but I honestly have no idea. I don't even use windows anymore.
