The illustration shows how AutoPlay proceeds to the execution of an application in response to the detection of hardware or media by the Shell Hardware Detection service.

The division lasts until the "Handler Table(s) Lookup" stage, when the AutoPlay process becomes much the same for both types of devices. Each part of the process, along with any relevant Registry entries, is described in subsequent sections.

Famous quotes containing the word application:

    The receipt to make a speaker, and an applauded one too, is short and easy.—Take of common sense quantum sufficit, add a little application to the rules and orders of the House, throw obvious thoughts in a new light, and make up the whole with a large quantity of purity, correctness, and elegancy of style.
