Hello Everyone! :-)

I need help with some programs i have made in Windows XP Pro.
Ok i have made some applications and i would like to make it bootable,
For example i would like to insert a Cd which boots my Application but there is only one problem and that is that my Application is 32 Bit meaning i can't launch it straight from DOS!
So is there anyway i could do this?
I just did an extensive search on good and i didn't get anything that could really helpl me!
If this can be done culd someone please give me very easy instructions on how to do it?
Bye :D

PS: I would like to make one of these programs Bootable,

Uh.. You might be better off trying a more Windows/PC related forum. I'm sure some AppleTalk members could help you with Mac related programming, but DOS and Windows are kind of out of the focus of this forum as I understand it.

Hmm, is there a way that you could put a slimmed down version of Windows on the CD and put a shortcut to the program in the Startup program group?

Or the above mention slimming down of windows would be good as well!

hrmm are you trying to make a Live Windows CD ?

Getting Windows started from a CD then starting a Win32 app is going to be incredibly difficult. You're better off finding an alternate solution.
Or making a DOS version of the app... if you can.

Sadly i can't make a DOS Version of the App. :-(

I tried the above mentioned site this morning but i need service pack one :-(
and it's 133Mb and i'm on dial up .
Well i guess if i get Service Pack One it should work!
Anyways Thankyou for helping me out!
