"Making PhotoMechanic the default import program on Windows"
Tue 01-Jan-13 10:52 PM by pwarbeck

Tucson AZ, US
          

I just installed PhotoMechanic v5 (PM) on Windows 7. Until now, I have been using Nikon Transfer 2 (NT2) as my import program. I want to start importing with PM, but I can't figure out how to do it.

When I connect my D7000 to my PC, I get a D7000 dialog. It gives me the option to change the import program, and gives the following list:


  • Windows
  • Windows Live Photo Gallery
  • Picasa3
  • * NT2

*NT2 is the default

The list does not include PM.

Following a suggestion seen elsewhere, I went to Control Panel\Hardware and Sound\AutoPlay and set Pictures to "Open or Ingest using PhotoMechanic." This has no effect as far as I can tell. The next time I connect the D7000, I get the same list of import program choices, and clicking "Import File" starts NT2.

What do I need to do?
