Is it possible to prevent the default device changing to my device when my driver installs on Windows

I am creating a driver for a virtual audio device. When my driver installs Windows automatically changes the default device to my device. Is there a way to prevent this from happening in the driver or the installer?

    If you set the following property key from within the driver INF it will block the device from ever becoming the windows default.
