Hey all!

I picked up a new little laptop with 64 bit Win7 on Black Friday. BTW, Win7 seems to move along pretty good, I'm pretty please.

So, I'm looking to install DPP, and I wondered if there are 1) any issues, 2) the Canon Web site shows Vista 64 bit (not Win7) -- any problems with the Vista 64 bit on Win7? 3) Will the same registry patch that worked on my XP machine to install without a disk work with Win7-64, or will I need a different patch?

My disks are so out of sight and mind I don't know where to start looking, so I figured some of you who are up to speed with Win7-64 might know. Thanks!!!

It works fine for me on Win 7 64bit. I don't use it often but it does run and hasn't crashed. I've not found anything that worked under Vista that now doesn't work under 7.

I did install a downloaded version with the original disk in the drive though so I'm not sure on the patch but if it's something the installer looks for then the registry in 7 works the same as Vista so it should be fine.

Tony,

Not trying to worry you but I had problems with the DPP 3.7.2 update on my XP machine and was forced to do a complete uninstall, then reload my original CD version of DPP before finally loading the update. Canon were unable to offer a better alternative. You may have to find those CD's, crazy as it is!

Hey, thanks all!

So, one more question: when they specify Vista 64 as the OS, does there seem to be a difference performance-wise over the "regular" 32 bit XP/Vista version?

I don't know about your specific questions with 7, but if you can't find your discs, call Canon, they sent them to me for free.

I'm running DPP on Win 7 64 bit. Runs perfectly fine.

I don't know about the registry fix, though.

Hey thanks all -- I've never been a DPP user, Photoshop and Lightroom, but recently installed it on my XP workstation so I could get to know it and provide some semblance of intelligent discussion here on POTN, hence the long-missing disks (I'll have to google "home search Canon disks":)).

Anyway, just trying to get this laptop set up with some stuff, thanks for your input!

Some people claim yes. I'm not so sure there is a measurable and visible overall performance increase going from Vista/32 to w7/64, but it does boot faster, seems more stable (I've been using W7 for six or eight months without a crash) and of course, you can have much larger images without bogging down in paging, etc. Since PS WIndows is 64 bit, this works well, though you may be surprised at how easy it is to use up 8GB of RAM.

For me the bottom line is that it's a much nicer GUI, and simply works better. The modifications to networking are almost enough reason to upgrade. Even so, my machine has OSX SL on it as well, and I wind up using that much more than W7.

Hey All!

I'm reviving my thread because I got some new info!

I did some googling and found one specific reference to this matter which may be meaningful -- a forum had a post that was Win 64 specific for the registry hack, which was what I was wondering about, and here are the entries he gave for the registry:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\EOS Utility]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\DPP]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\ZoomBrowser EX]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\ZoomBrowser EX\Settings]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\ZoomBrowser EX\Install]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\PhotoStitch
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\EOS Capture]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\EOSViewerUtility]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\ODSK]

For those who have not done this with your Win7 64 bit system, the instructions are the same as a 32-bit system: paste these lines into a text file, then rename the .txt file with a .reg extension. This makes the file automatically associated to the Registry, so you can double-cick it to "install" these lines into the registry. After that you should be able to install a version of DPP that is listed as supporting Vista 64 bit, such as the 7D software, although I don't believe that DPP will actually be "64 bit" any time soon.

Be forewarned, though, that "hacking" the registry has risks -- if "bad" stuff gets in there it can crash your system -- you'd likey have to do a "safe mode" reboot and try to "unhack" things (or do a System Restore) so do this at your own risk.

Well, try it if you want and post back your results, good bad or ugly!

Caution on the above post. The copy leaves some spaces that i do not think should be there, although I could be wrong.

Examples are:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOF​TWARE\Wow6432Node\Cano​n\Phot oStitch
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\EOS Capture]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SO​FTWARE\Wow6432Node\Can​on\EOSV iewerUtility]


I do not think the spaces in Phot oStitch, EOS Capture and EOSV iewerUtility

Also I do not think the line:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[COLOR=black]
should be there either.
[COLOR=black]
Perhaps Tony can clarify.
[COLOR=black]

Yikes, I didn't even notice those blanks! Thanks for catching that!

From looking at the 32 bit reg file, it looks like photostitch and EOSViewerUtility should (obviously) be one word, but there is a blank between all ZoomBrowser EX settings, but I hope I'm not mistaken:)!

I'll add -- I don't know what happened to the copy/paste of that post -- my txt file looks fine, but the paste to the forum came across with the added blanks. Sorry, all!
