I'm having a problem getting the EOS Utility to recognize the 5D Mark II plugged in the computer.
I'm running Windows 7 RC1 build 7100. I installed pretty old versions of DPP and the EOS Utility that I got with my Rebel XT years ago. I copied them from the CD and I use them as my first install and then install whichever is the latest update file which right now is 361 and 261 for DPP and EOS Utility respectively.
I plugged the camera into the computer via USB then turned the camera on. Windows recognizes the camera and even shows it in explorer but the 'camera settings/remote shooting' icon in the EOS Utility is not active.
I tried closing and reopening the software and turning the camera on and off in various combinations and nothing works. I rebooted also which didn't help.
With my previous cameras I sometimes had to install the WIA drivers myself, but these don't seem to be around anymore as I suppose the OS just does all that for us.
For what it's worth the 40D is recognized by Windows also but not the EOS Utility.
Anyone with Windows 7 able to get this to work? Is it a Win 7 problem or a Canon software problem?
