Windows 7 Ultimate 64
DVD Shrink and Autorun

I tried looking around on the net and here, but I wasn't able to find what I was looking for.

I want to put in a dvd and have dvdshrink lunch automatically. Anyone have ideas?

Try This.. (This came from Microsoft Support LINK)

Follow these steps to specify what should happen when you insert different types of digital media into your computer.
  1. Open AutoPlay by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Hardware and Sound, and then clicking AutoPlay.
  2. Under Media, find the type of media that you want to change the AutoPlay setting for.
  3. Click the action that you want AutoPlay to take when you insert that type of media into your computer.
  4. Click Save.
Hope this Helps..

Those instructions are correct as far as they go, but DVD Shrink doesn't appear as an option in the dropdown windows. He would need a method to add it. I have DVD Shrink and DVD Decrypter both installed, and only the latter appears in the options.

Yeah. I am a customizing freak and I hate having taskbar icons that I don't really need. Since I only use dvd shrink to back up my dvds, I never have a reason to click on it, when a new dvd has not been inserted. Seems like this may require a registry hack.

If you wanted to attempt the registry hack, this might be of some help:

Obsolete devices in Autoplay list & multiple entries for same devices

Checkout Gloria's posts. There are some edits that I would like to make, but this looks a bit deep for me.
