Sounds like you need to make an autorun.inf file.

In a text editor, create a plain text document with the following text:

open = path\to\your\app\on\the\cd

Name this document "autorun.inf" and place it at the root level of your CD.
This should cause your app to auto-launch when the disc is loaded.
