    Autoplay (or is it autorun?) issue with mounted images inf ignored


    So after re-installing daemon tools (i didnt get the memo that sptd got perma broken with windows 1903) I discovered (likely an issue prior, just noticed now) that I wasnt getting the icon in my navigation pane for whatever iso I mounted.

    this was further determined to not be presenting me with the context menu items for "Install or run program from your media" and "Open AutoPlay" etc.

    the only related context menu item I would see is "Eject"

    I thought it may be Daemon tools specifically, so i re-associated iso's with windows and the result was the same (which is likely the crux of the issue) as even when associated with DT windows context menu should be presenting that stuff.

    I did test on another PC with DT installed, and it worked properly. Tested on a clean VM, worked properly.

    Anyone able to see where the issue would lay? Autoplay settings are the same between them. Im fortunate enough to at least have multiple environments to compare against but im stuck.

    :)

  2. Windows 10 Autorun?

    Hello,

    As you are asking whether the security of disabling Autorun/Autoplay option from system settings is the same as disabling from the registry and will take affect in the same way. There is no need to worry about virus threats which usually attack from autorun/autoplay.
    If you want to disable autorun/autoplay from registry, follow the steps provided below:

    • Type regedit in the search box and press Enter.
    • Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
    • In the right pane of the window create a new DWORD value "NoDriveTypeAutorun".
    • Set the value based on the following requirements:
      • FF – To disable AutoRun on all drives
      • 20 – To disable AutoRun on CD-ROM drives
      • 4 – To disable AutoRun on removable drives
      • 8 – To disable AutoRun on fixed drives
      • 10 – To disable AutoRun on network drives
      • 40 – To disable AutoRun on RAM disks
      • 1 – To disable AutoRun on unknown drives
    • If you want to disable AutoRun on a certain combination of drives, you’ll have to combine their values. For example, if you want to disable AutoRun on CD-ROM and removable drives, set the value of DWORD to 28.
    • If you want to return AutoRun functionality, just delete the NoDriveTypeAutorun DWORD value.

    Note: This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore,
    make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following

    Disabling Autoplay/Autorun

    If as suggested here, the end result is exactly the same registry change, there is no difference.

    You can test that for yourself using a free utility called regshot. This takes a snapshot of the registry; you then make the change; take a second snapshot, then compare them.

    All changes made between the two are listed.

    Also, check with the sound drivers as well.

    • To enable AutoPlay, move the Use AutoPlay for all media and devices button to On.
    • Next you can choose and set your AutoPlay defaults.
    For Removable drives, the following options are available from the drop-down menu:

    • Take no action
    • Open folder to view files
    • Ask me every time
    • Configure this drive for backup (File History)
    • Configure storage settings (Settings).

    For Memory Cards, the options available are:

    • Play video files using alternate
      software
    • Play using Windows Media Player
    • Take no action
