My friend has windows XP PRO and when he plugs in his camera the Camera Wizard starts up automatically.  However when I plug in my camera In my computer with XP PRO, it shows up only as a removeable drive, the Camera Wizard does not auto start.  Is there an option to tell xp to start the wizard when a usb device is plugged in?  What can I do get camera wizard to start up automatically?

An even better solution is to leave it installed but disallow the realsched.exe to run (since it is the real issue). You can do this by using the registry entry as follows.....

OF COURSE ALL REGISTRY EDITS ARE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DON'T WHINE TO ME, MICROSOFT, OR TO EXPERTS-EXCHANGE IF YOU SCREW THIS UP!

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.  
3. Create a DWORD value named DisallowRun. To do so:a.  Locate and then click the following registry key:
     HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Policies\Explorer  
        b.  On the Edit menu, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.
        c.  Type disallowrun, and then press ENTER.
        d.  Double-click the DisallowRun value that you created in the previous step.
        e.  Type 1 in the Value data box, and then click OK.
4. Create a new HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Policies\Explorer\DisallowRun subkey.
     To do so:
        a.  Right-click the following registry key, point to New, and then click Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Policies\Explorer  
        b.  Type disallowrun, and then press ENTER.
5. For each program that you want to prevent users from running, create a new string value in the DisallowRun subkey that you created in step 4. Use consecutive numbers to name the string values (starting with 1), and use the executable file name for the program as the data for the string value.

For example, if you want to restrict users from running realsched.exe:
     a.  Right-click the following registry key, point to New, and then click String Value:
          HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion \Policies\Explorer\DisallowRun  
     b.  Type 1, and then press ENTER.
     c.  Double-click the 1 value that you created in the previous step.
     d.  Type realsched.exe in the Value data box, and then click OK.
6. Quit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

This information came directly from the MS article http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q323525

This does NOT prevent real player from running, but does prevent the realsched.exe from running, which in my testing is the problem causing the wizard not to start. Once I did this and restarted my machine the wizard starts every time.
