    Hi!
    I had put this question in a forum of information technology but, later, I realized this is amied for common people to read it, not technicians. So...

    I need to write these instructions in both Spanish and English to explain how to view a multimedia presentation from a CD.

    The Spanish version of the second instruction reads:
    Espere a que se ejecute el programa de autoinicio.

    This is what I've tried:
    1. Wait until auto-start software to be launched.
    2. Wait until the auto-start software is launched.

    Besides phrasing, I'm not sure which expresion to use for "autoinicio": autostart / auto start / self-start / self-starting
    So, I decided to be modest and ask your opinion, guys. :D

    Thanks in advance!

    Wait until the auto start up programs launch.

    Thanks, Tezza, you're my savior!
    So, if there's only one auto start up program, could I say:
    "Wait until the auto start up program launches"?
    Thanks again.
