Autoplay does not appear

when i insert any removable media (CD, DVD, USB HDD etc.)
autoplay window like in the attached picture does not apear.

I have looked Change AutoPlay Setting and AutoPlay for all media and devices
is selected.
Any ideas what could be wrong?

Try to go on Control Panel > AutoPlay and make sure to check "Use AutoPlay for all media and devices"

Problem solved
it seems some software like virtualization, cd tools may disable autoplay.
in my case i think it was VMWare, but even after uninstall it did not revert this setting.
even if its selected in windows control panel the problem lies deeper.
anyone else who have this problem there is a solution that worked for me

open regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer(this has higher priority than user)
or
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
find NoDriveTypeAutoRun entry
if the value 0000000FF (255) that means disabled
windows 7 default value should be 000000091 (145)

!Notice changing registry is dangerous, if you dont know what youre doing plese dont do it and always backup(export the key before changing) so you can restore if something goes wrong.
