The Multi CD Option is a good route to take if you are planning on distributing your demo and other files on multiple cds. What this option does is, when the first CD is placed in the CD-Rom, all files in the same directory as the DemoShield Player (demo32.exe) are copied to the user's Temp directory and the demo is launched from there. This allows the end user to remove the CD from the CD-Rom without disrupting the demo playback.

To setup your Launch actions you can use the CD Token (<CD>) which will tell DemoShield to go to the first CD-Rom drive on the user's system and find the file. If the appropriate CD has not been placed in the CD-Rom, a message can be displayed to inform the user to place the next disk in the CD-Rom. This message can be selected from the Action Settings for your Launch Application Action.

I hope this helps.
