OK, getting confused with numerous people talking about 5DI. What do I need to do in order to shoot tethered with a 5DI (i.e. 5DC) on a Windows 7, 64 bit?

Thanks

Go to this web site
http://windows.microso​ft.com …dows-xp-mode-in-windows-7 (external link)

And read about installing Windows VirtualPC and XPMode. You'll need to download and install them - they are extensions to Windows 7.

Then read Brandon's instructions
===============
Basically you need to use the Virtual XP mode, then install the 5D USB WIA XP driver, then you run DPP/EOSUtility inside of the XP mode. That's if you have 32 bit WIndows 7. If you have 64, you'll either need to dual boot XP, or buy a new camera. I just dual-booted XP so I could shoot tethered with Lightroom, and it works great after installing the 20D WIA USB driver.

I shouldn't have to do all this trouble shooting to tether on a 5DI. This is ridiculous and upsetting! I have Windows Home Premium, like most people Id bet, and it doesnt look like my laptop allows HAV. Now to check my BIOS? Ludicrous. BIOS allowed me to turn on HAV. Now to spend $90 to upgrade to Windows Professional? BS.

I've never used Home Premium, but spending $90 on software is a lot cheaper than buying a 5D MII.

If it’s not hardware-assisted virtualization, then I have no idea.

Please excuse my eruption but Canon needs to get on the ball and release drivers that will work with the 5DI and Windows 7/64 bit. The trouble shooting/work-around is unacceptable.

For others future reference:

It is and it is not required for XP-Mode anymore, MS released an update to allow it to work on non HAV CPUs.

See: http://www.microsoft.c​om …/virtual-pc/download.aspx (external link)

Stage 4 is the update, you'll need to pick a Windows version and language before you can see it.

For a 5Dc to be recognized, you need to change the communication mode on the camera. You won't have tethered shooting or anything, but at least you can DL photos with a USB if you aren't into card readers (like me).

Strange works just fine on my Windows 7 64 bit. I haven't tried tethered shooting but lightroom recognizes it and imports just fine.

On Windows 7 32 bit, put your 5D on Comunication ---> Print/PTP no PC connect., and all will be OK !!! To me it worked... I don't know if worked with W7 64bit.

Around April of 2011 I contacted Canon Support and asked them about tethering a 5D (classic, not mark II or III) and they said the drivers to communicate between PC and Lightroom will not work beyond Vista 32 bit. He said Windows 7 is totally different, and the driver will not work.

So now that Lightroom 4 is released, LR4 will not support Windows XP. I think it supports Vista, but not sure of the details.

To shoot tethered mode into Lightroom, I had had to setup an XP computer, and Lightroom 3.6. this is the last known combination that I can setup to shoot tethered into Lightroom. I want to use LR4, but after the shoot I will convert the LR3.6 catalog to LR4 and continue to edit.

I know I might be able to load a Virtual XP in WIndows 7, but I am not sure I want to do that. Does anybody have a good experience using Virtual XP on Windows 7 64bit? I know LR4 will not run on XP even in Virtual XP, so that does not help in that respect. I guess I will keep an old PC running XP and LR3.6 for tethered shooting.

If I could load up a machine with 32 bit Vista, maybe LR4 would be the last working configuration to tether all three (5D, Vista 32 bit, and Lightroom 4) together.

I run Virtual XP mode (NOT dual boot) on my laptop with Windows 7 Professional 64bit and LR3.
Works just fine for tethering my 5Dc
