Discstarter 5.0 Autorun Menu System for CD-ROMs

Discstarter 5.0 Autorun Menu System for CD-ROMs

Discstarter 5.0 enables rapid creation of professional autostart menus for CD browsers, product tours, corporate presentations, and more from simple HTML pages.

mirabyte Software announces the immediate availability of Discstarter 5.0, the newest version of its award-winning tool for creating professional looking CD-ROM menus and front-ends from HTML pages. Discstarter is successfully applied by major companies around the world and is also widely used for menus of cover mount CD-ROMs of many IT and computer magazines.

Version 5.0 comes with a completely new and intuitive interface that allows you to configure your front-end or menu with ease. Besides several other refinements the new version already supports the upcoming Windows 7 operating system and can be applied for a completely new use case apart from CD menus: Kiosk terminal systems, e.g. for the use in hotel lobbies or on trade fairs as self-service information desks. In the same way as you create CD front-ends with Discstarter, you can now also create applications that are run on public kiosk terminals and information desks.

But Discstarter is also perfect for software vendors and magazine publishers who need to build compelling autostart menus for software or driver CD-ROMs, offline product catalogues, sales presentations, corporate presentation, digital business cards and e-learning applications, but don't have time to learn a complex design tool. Discstarter has proved itself on millions of CD-ROM's as a 100% trouble-free product. The product helps to better reach customers, without expensive authoring tools or spending money to outsource.

Discstarter allows you to use the same technology and the same tools that are used for creating web pages. Use your favourite editor to create HTML pages and then use Discstarter to blend them with graphics, audio and buttons into a fully fledged CD-ROM project. All the operations are fairly easy to do thanks to the Discstarter's point-and-click design environment and tutorials. For comfortable offline browsing, you can add extensions to the menu for running EXE, ZIP, PDF files directly from HTML pages or run PHP, Perl, MySQL applications from CD-ROM without any installation! It is also possible to embed a full text search engine.

Pricing & Availability

Discstarter 5.0 is available immediately from mirabyte, its online shop, and through a network of authorized resellers worldwide. For new customers the product is available for EUR 99.95. Upgrades are available for previous owners of Discstarter for free. Discstarter runs on all versions of Microsoft Windows. Additional information on the product is available from www.mirabyte.com .
