NeoRouter AutoRun Configuration

What is it?

AutoRun Configuration is a tool that helps you to create an autorun package for USB drive. With this package, you can connect a computer to your NeoRouter network by simply plugging your USB drive into the computer and disconnect it by unplugging it. It will automatically set proxy settings, sign in, pre-install a NeoRouter component and run a specific application in terms of your configuration files. Once disconnected from the network, it will terminate the application and clean up the related files. Since the client software is a NeoRouter Viewer, no admin permission is required.

Create an AutoRun Package

1. Visit and download NeoRouter For USB for Windows.

2. Unzip the package to a folder. For example, C:\TEMP.

3. Run the AutoRun configuration tool AutoRunCfg.exe.

4. Click on the button on the right side of the working directory text box to specify a working path. By default, it's using current directory. Click on the "OK" button in the "Browse For Folder" dialog box, it will create a sub-folder "NRAutoRun" where the configurations files will be stored.

5. Once you specify a working directory, the "Settings" section is enabled.

6. Specify the NeoRouter Viewer program by clicking on the button on the right side of the "Target file" text box. We recommend you to choose the file CliViewer.exe comming with the package.

NOTE: DON'T choose NeoRouter Network Explorer Portable, which is does not work with the autorun configuration files.

7. Click on the "Sign in" checkbox and input the user information, that will be uased by CliViewer.exe to log on to the NeoRouter network.

8. Setup the proxy information if need.

9. If you want to pre-import a NeoRouter add-on, click on the button on the right side of the "Add-on file" text box and specify an add-on file.

10. If you want to run an application automatically after signing in, click on the "Run application automatically" check box and input an executable file path and parameters.

11. If you don't want to see NeoRouter Viewer window, click on the "Minimize NeoRouter window when started".

12. Click on "Save" button to save the configuration files. It will generate the following files:

Working directory\Autorun.inf
Working directory\NRAutoRun
Working directory\CliViewer.exe      (Copied from the file you choose)
Working directory\NRAutoRun.xml
Working directory\[add-on file].nri  (if you specify an add-on)
Working directory\Proxy.xml          (if you specify a proxy)

13. Copy all files and sub-folder under the working directory to the root of your USB drive.

14. Finish.
