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

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 Live Photo Gallery
*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.
