How do I add a new autoplay handler in Windows 7? I have the Home Premium version and want to add a new handler for DVDs.

It guess I have to add keys to:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AutoplayHandlers\EventHandlers\<Event Name>

I used to use Tweak UI in XP but I've read it no longer works in Win7.

I never would have found this answer if I hadn't just asked the question here!

Use Default Program Editor.

The answer is from Ramesh Srinivasan, Microsoft MVP [Windows Desktop Experience] in Microsoft Answers.

It works like a charm!
