Bundle version of PowerDVD DX v8.2 run problem


I have a dell mini 910 and the external dvd rom. The PowerDVD dx dvd v8.2 will not autorun when inserted into the DVD rom. I have turned autorun on. In file browser when I click on the setup.exe file nothing happens.
Any ideas?
Thx

Yes...PowerDVD is a Windows program, and won't run on Linux.

You can use Kaffeine, Xine, or Mplayer to play DVD's, though. Some (or all) of them may be installed already. But you don't say what version/distro you're using, so it's hard to say.
