G.I.F.T. Booter is an application to create graphical "auto run" menus for CD's / DVD's. Any bitmap, GIF or JPG file can be used, and hotspots can be defined to perform actions when a region of the image is clicked on. It provides functions to access the MS Windows shell so that any file type registered with the user's operating system can be activated automatically, and also includes several special codes for items such as "minimise", "maximise / restore", and "Browse CD with Explorer".
