I've had an ongoing problem on my Windows 10 system with Lightroom CC not opening via autoplay when I insert a memory card. I managed to fix the issue but every time a Lightroom update is installed autoplay breaks again for the same reason.

The problem (and fix) is that the registry key


has the data in quotes, which seems to break autoplay.

When I remove the quotes

autoplay works fine, lightroom opens to the import dialog as expected...

Is this a known problem, or have I discovered something unique to my setup? Anyone know how to fix things so I don't have to do a registry edit every few weeks?
