    I am trying to run a perl script on a removable hardrive when I insert it.

    However, whenever it opens it just pops up with the standard menu "What do you want to do" and it doesn't autorun.

    Currently the autorun file looks like this:

    [autorun]
    open=perl Data/update.pl



    update.pl is in the data subfolder of the drive. I heard this is a problem with Sp2 and I was wondering if anyone knew how to fix it to allow th perl script to run. I have activeperl installed and when I manually run the script it works.
