talked to canon, they are not going to support any non automatic PTP cameras in windows 7.
this includes most 1d's, many high end camera users are not going to be happy.

it wouldn't be so bad if canon wasn't conned into using firewire.
i can't install a firewire card into my laptop, and the desktop won't support the camera.

i think the top brass at canon has bought heavy into Nikon!

Did you try loading an older version of EOS utility? I heard the latest version won't support bodies older than the EOS 30D. I'm considering a laptop upgrade, so was wondering if I'm going to run into the same problem with Windows 7 and my EOS 5D.

I am on win 7 x64 home premium and cannot run the EOS utility for my 1D markII. However I was reading about Windows Virtual PC available if upgraded to W7x64Pro that can run an XP mode. The upgrade is currently $90 and the WVPC is a separate install. Anyone tried this and have feedback?

Added a sic so your statement is a little more accurate. It runs fine under Windows 7 32 bit, but it would cost Canon too much money write a 64 bit driver and have it signed. I keep an old laptop running (Windows 7 Professional 32 bit) just for those rare occasions I want to change a personal function on my Mark IIN.

I don't have a Windows 7 64-bit machine to try this on, but I was attempting to use EOS utility to change the Owner Name in my used 5D and EOS utility said I needed to change the Communication option in the 5D menu to PC connect. When I did that Windows XP wouldn't recognize the 5D until I loaded the WIA driver. So... to make a long story short I was wondering if the latest EOS utility running on Windows 7 64-bit would be able to download images from a 5D that has the Communication menu option set to Print/PTP.

And my Dad's A1 and Leica IIc still work flawlessly.

Modern technology has some significant problems. :(

I finally upgraded to a new laptop which has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit (6GB memory) installed. I was expecting to not be able to use EOS utility to download images from my 5D classic, but was pleasantly surprised that it works fine. I'm running EOS utility version 2.6.1.0 (an older version) and have the 5D menu's Communication option set to Print/PTP.

FYI:

"When running under Windows Vista, EOS Utility does not support the EOS-1Ds, EOS-1D, EOS 10D, EOS Digital Rebel/300D Digital, EOS D60 or EOS D30.

When running on Windows Vista 64-bit systems, EOS Utility does not support the EOS-1D Mark II N, EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D Mark II, EOS 5D, EOS 20D or EOS Digital Rebel XT/350D Digital."

Should apply the same to Windows 7
