Having problems with your Canon PowerShot S3 IS Digital Camera ?

Canon PowerShot S3 IS & Windows 7

\015 I have a new pc running Windows 7. I installed my Canon software and had no errors when loading it; however, the Camera Window won't open so it can retreive the pictures off my camera. I removed and re-installed the software and it is still a no-go. Please help! Dying to get my pictures off my camera and use this new PC!\015

Answers :

This is correct. The S3 is discovered by windows 7 and will allow download of pictures by Windows Picture download. The Canon Utilities software - Zoombrowser - will not work with windows 7 as the software cannot detect the Camera via Windows 7.. Also, Camera window will not start, if using the PC/laptop for remote image recording. If you virtualise XP within Windows 7 this still will not work. The only solution at the moment, if you are deperate, like I was (as I use the Remote Capture process a lot), is to either stick with Win Xp or Dual boot XP on a smaller partition.
According to Canon your camera is compatible with Windows 7, with the added note "CameraWindow does not start." That sounds kind of contradictory to me, so I checked further, and in another area on the Canon site Windows 7 is not listed with your camera. Sorry, but I could not find a specific solution for you, so I suggest that you question Canon directly by following this link:
