AutoPlay for Vista x64

#1

Im running Vista Ultimate x64 and DVDFab’s autoplay handler created on the install does not show up. Maybe in the next build the staff will fix this problem for us 64-bit users. In the mean time here is a manual “registry edit” to add DVDFab to the AutoPlay list when you pop a dvd in.

Click Start, type REGEDIT then hit Enter:

Go to:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Expl orer\AutoplayHandlers\EventHandlers\PlayDVDMovieOnArrival

Right click on PlayDVDMovieOnArrival and select New, String Value and name the new value: DVDFabPlatinum

Next go to:
HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\Handlers

Right click on the Handlers sub-key and select New, Key and name the new key: DVDFabPlatinum

Highlight the DVDFabPlatinum key you just created.

For the following actions, right click in the right pane and select New, and then select the value type indicated:

String Value. Name it Action. Double click Action and enter a descriptive name like Copy/Convert/Burn or whatever you like.

Expandable String value. Name it DefaultIcon. Double click this entry and enter:

C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Platinum 4\DVDFabPlatinum.exe

String Value. Name it InvokeProgID. Double click this entry and enter: DVDFabPlatinumOpen

String Value. Name it InvokeVerb. Double click and enter: open

String value. Name it Provider. Double click and enter the program’s name, example: DVDFab Platinum- The Ultimate DVD Software!

Still in Regedit, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. Right click on this branch and select New, Key and name the new key: DVDFabPlatinumOpen

Double click the Default value and enter the program name. Example: DVDFab Platinum

Right click on the DVDFabPlatinumOpen key and select New, Key and name the new key: DefaultIcon

Highlight the DefaultIcon key and enter the full path and file name of your DVD program followed by ,1

Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Platinum 4\DVDFabPlatinum.exe,1

Right click on the DVDFabPlatinumOpen key and select New, Key and name the new key: shell

Right click on the shell key and select New, Key and name this key: open

Right click on the open key and select New, Key and name this key: command

Double click the Default value in the command key and enter the full path and file name of your DVD program.

Example: C:\Program Files (x86)\DVDFab Platinum 4\DVDFabPlatinum.exe

Now you can file>exit.

Click Start (Windows Logo)
click Default Programs.
Click Change AutoPlay settings.
Check “DVD movie” for DVDFab.
All done! :clap:

How do you like Vista 64? Am I missing out on something? I have a new dual-core that came pre-loaded with the 32 bit version. I just noticed today that the new HP AMD Quadcores are shipping with Vista 64. I’d be curious to see if it was faster (with DVDFab).

I was worried about driver support - Any issues there?

Im enjoying it. Not struggling at all. However before upgrading I did double check all my hardware to make sure I had full driver support. As for apps/programs checkout my post here: http://www.planetamd64.com/index.php?showtopic=30090&st=20#entry331911 its also on my signature. If you have questions email me. Im not sure if we can discuss non dvdfab topics in this forum. Besides I can give more detailed help via email.

Cheers! Very helpful and it works. One can even export the new registry entries, in case a reinstall of Vista is needed.

thanks!

This worked great for another program I use that wasn’t showing up, THX.

One question. Now that I’ve done all the work and got things working is there an easy way to create a reg file of all the changes so if in the future I need to reinstall Vista I can have a simple reg file to add all the info back again instead of having to manually doing everything?

Just right-click on the specific programs regedit folder that you want and select “export” save the file and its as simple as that.
