WMP missing as option in DVD Autoplay

Somewhere along the way, the handler for Windows Media Player disappeared from the DVD Autoplay list. Is there a simple reg fix to put it back? I found one for Media Center, but not WMP. Thanks.

Aha! I figured it out: Control Panel > Default Programs > Set Program Access. I changed the setting from Custom to Microsoft and WMP re-appeared.
