Problem With Acdsee
Posted 05 March 2008 - 04:10 PM
I've also tried to untick the "browse with acdsee" option in ACDSee, but it doesn't remember this option.
How can I fix this ?

The second problem can be fixed by configuring AutoRun. Windows XP and Vista (I can’t remember if 2000 also) use a formula to tell how to open an AutoRun item. Vista is slightly different than XP but they are basically the same. If the documents are mostly pictures then a picture viewer is used, for music the music formatting is used. One of the first things I do to a new computer is turn off all AutoRun options for all drives. I consider it a security issue and I don’t like the idea of a random CD executing code on my machine without permission. The tool that I use is TweakUI (http://www.microsoft...ppowertoys.mspx) from Microsoft. While looking over my copy of TweakUI, I noticed the following tip
“To Customize AutoPlay settings, open My Computer, right-click the drive you want to customize, select Properties, then AutoPlay”
Those instructions may be exactly what you are looking for but I would suggest you also take a look at TweakUI and see if there is anything useful to you in there (like disabling AutoRun all together).

I've already managed to fix the problem for drives (by changing the default action), but it doesn't want to work for folders . Maybe it has something to do with the fact that 3 users were loged on to the computer, but I doubt that'll be the problem.
I don't know when I have the chance to try fixing it, but I think I'm going to uninstall and reinstall the application first before trying again. If I find a solution, I'll post it here .
