Default Converting .exe file

I have a program that is on a Cd as a .exe file....i want to copy it to another cd...but as a self executing file so that you don't have to go to the drive and click on it to extract would i do that?

You would have to create an autorun file on that CD as well that would point to this executable. If you look at most CDs that you get with hardware, games, OSs, etc, you will see these files on the CD. You can use these files as an example for the syntax of the file.
