Increases the capabilities of Autorun. Autorun has limitations to only execute applications. Daboo AutoRun removes these limitations by allowing executables or associated files to be executed. For example: You want An HTML document to open with the default browser when the cd is inserted. Autorun cannot do this, but, Daboo AutoRun CAN.



  • Configure DAR.ini
    • AppPath > Path: This is the path to the application you wish to execute. If this is left blank, the application path is considered to be the directory that the DAR.exe file is in.
    • Apps > App: This is the Application to execute. This can be pretty much any application, the most common file types are: html, txt, doc, exe. (Any file with an extension that is recognized by widows will be opened with the default application. File extensions not recognized by windows will be ignored.)
    • Timer > ShowTime: This is a numeric value between 2000 and 10000 (2 seconds and 10 seconds), this is how long the Daboo AutoRun logo will be shown on the screen while the application is being executed. (The following is an example of how to open index.html with the default web browser when the CD is inserted.
  • Copy DAR.exe, and Dar.ini to the root directory of the CD
  • Configure the Autorun.inf file to run DAR.exe on startup.
    • Example of Autorun.inf



  • Daboo AutoRun is executed from the Autorun.inf file on removable media, such as a CD or DVD. To execute Daboo AutoRun, add “OPEN=DAR.exe” to the Autorun.inf file as indicated in the setup.
  • Once all of the files are burned or copied to the removable media, DAR will be executed when the media is inserted.
  • The “Daboo AutoRun logo will show in the center of the PC screen while the specified application executes or opens.
