Whenever I burn any app (anything with a .exe extension) onto cd, it seems to go through fine but when I try and launch the app from the cd, it just flashes up a dos command prompt and then does nothing. Even the icon for the app is changed into a dos one.
The file size is the same, the name is the same, but the app won’t work.
I’m doing it on XP and have tried with Nero, Easy CD Creator, Drop On CD, XP’s built in burner thing. Same happens on every single one. I’m using an ASUS CRW 5224A. Have tried upgrading the firmware on that an now joy either.
However I can burn MP3’s, VCD’s etc. Just no luck with apps.
I’ve zipped files up, created iso’s or made images. Doesn’t make a difference. Still won’t run the exe’s in there once they’re burned onto the cd. I’ve also tried copying the files back off the cd once done and that doesn’t work.
I’ve searched the forums and can’t find anything on there so thought i’d ask.
