    Disable the win mediaplayer ...



    Im making a simple VB app that plays audio CD's , with mci call.

    But, when i put an audio cd in the CD-ROM, default windows player starts
    up.

    Have someone managed to disable this ?, should it be possible progamatically
    ?

    What is it you're looking to change? Do you want to turn off AIN (Auto Insert Notification) or
    change the default CD player?

    Well, I think it must be the Auto Insert Notification, just knowing the name
    of it helps a lot.

    I must disable Auto Insert Notification, in the install procedure.
    (Without knowing if this is wise regarding the rest of the system)

    Thanks

    Disabling the auto-insert notification is not a good idea since it is a system wide setting that can
    affect other applications (Roxio's EZ CD Creator is one of those).

    Most applications like this *offer* to make their player the default player either during
    installation or when the app is launched. I believe this is controlled by the HKCR\AudioCD entry in
    the Registry.

    HAppy tea time
    Forget that last mail , i was writing in my sleep...

    I must of course change the default windows mediaplayer.

    So folks , my install procedure must change default mediaplayer, I believe
    this is done in some ini file , or registry somwhere. What i dont know if
    is if this is usual matter...

    ->VB is in, C++-> out

    I believe that would be the Registry entry I mentioned above. If you're still stick on what to do,
    post a follow up.
