|So, you created a great web page to share your album with internet friends, and you want to give one of your friends a copy on CD.
You can, of course, just give them the same files and folders that you uploaded to the internet. They can open the web page off of the CD (or copy it to their hard drive and then open it) by double clicking on the html file. (Make it even easier on them and add an autorun.inf file that opens the html web page.)
Another option, if you used MIXER, is to open up 3D-album and go to CREATE and choose MIXER and point to your presentation and then do another BUILD, this time choosing "Create presentation as an application".
Yet another option is to give them all of the files and folders except for the HTML file. Then, add an autorun.inf file that executes the .vexe file. (Or, tell them to double click on the .vexe file). You'll also need to add the vaengine.dll file if they haven't already downloaded and executed the visvivia player. You can find a copy of vaengine.dll in any of the 3D-album applications that you've previously built.
Creating the autorun.inf file is easy. First, go to the high level folder (the one that contains the first .html or .vexe file), then right click on an open area and "add new text document". Then rename the new text document to autorun.inf and right click on it and select edit or "open with notepad". Then copy the following code, and paste it into the autorun.inf document, and then change "MYALBUM.HTML" to the name of your high level .html or .vexe file.
