I have this very basic request from a client: He wants a dvd rom that autoruns and starts with a menu with a background music with 3 choices (three buttons). I thought: Easy, I can do that with DVDSP right?
But actually he wants for choice number one an avi file that is supposed to open in any player available on the computer, choice two is a sound file that is supposed to open in any sound player available on the computer, choice three is a pdf file that is supposed to open with adobe acrobat when ever you click on it, It sounds simple but yet DVDSP is not the software for achieving this. Adobe director is too complex for me, more a programmer software, isn't there a more simpler software available to achieve this? Thanks in advance for guiding me.

This is in fact very simple in Director.

You could outsource it and have it done for something like 100 bucks.

But your client is stupid. What if there is no PDF reader or mediaplayer available on the computer?
Should there be checks build in or not?

Well if you have a computer with no mediaplayer oar PDF reader, I think there is something terribly wrong... Even if Khazakstan they must have it by now.

It's not uncommon in corporate environments to have really strange machines.
But, if you think this is the case for your project, i'm willing to take the project.
It will set you back 100 USD, you provide the artwork, and i'll make the application.

There is Multimedia builder and Autoplay Media Studio on PC and iShell on Mac (but less simple than the PC softs). Actually I am already the guy to whom the job was outsourced for 100 bucks... You had intuition for this but you were just one step behind.
; )

I did not know that when I asked the question. Some other people gave me the answer in the meanwhile.
But still nobody could come up with a decent soft for Mac.
