Topic: Autorun CD Install reader or run from CD

Hi, I have been trying to write a script for a autorun.inf to launch a pdf file. I managed to get it to work by running reader from the CD. However I have been trying to write script to:
Check users system for Reader to launch pdf file. If there is no Reader then launch reader from the CD or Install from CD then launch PDF file.

I manage to get a script that will install Reader from the CD if no Reader is on the system but it does not automatically launch file after installation. (I tried this with Reader 7)

I also tried to use a script to check system for existing readers, then open pdf file. If no reader is available launch from CD using Reader 6. - I could not get this to work.

I would prefer to use Reader 6 rather than 7 because of the accept and decline pop up window before launch is annoying especially when its for company profiles. Can anyone help with a script to launch the by checking before launching or installing and launching?
