Add Program to Vista 64 AutoPlay Options

Discussion in 'Windows Vista General Discussion' started by Daniel E. Jameson, Mar 11, 2009.

  1. Hi,

    When I first connected my digital camera to my new Windows Vista 64 bit
    computer, it was immediately recoginzed. When I connect it subsequently, I
    get the AutoPlay dialog box. I bought the version 7.0 upgrade of Adobe
    Photoshop Elements (PSE7) and installed it. I was disappointed that it did
    not appear in the AutoPlay dialog box for my camera. From within PSE7 I can
    initiate a successful photo download. I contacted Adobe tech support, and
    they said

    """"
    When the 64-bit editions of Windows XP and Windows Vista detect that a new
    device or media has been connected, they do not recognize 32-bit
    applications as programs that can be used to download or manage the content.
    """"

    Is there some way I can add any program of my choice to the AutoPlay dialog
    box for a device or media?

    Thank you,
    Dan Jameson

  3. Close! But it only has a fixed number of generic devices it can install
    handlers for. Thus, even though I could create a handler for PSE7, I
    couldn't associate it with my camera. Thank you, none the less.

    "Autoplay Repair" is used to create handlers. Do you need help with that?
