Question about Canon Powershot Sx240 Hs 12.1 Mp 20x Camera Blackbundled 5gifts1 Year Warranty
Just bought new Canon point-and-shoot and downloaded the provided software which included ImageBroswer Ex. It downloaded fine but then when I try to open the program, it only starts up to 80% and then I get an error message that says "failed to load properly.Verify that Silverlight is properly installed and start Image Browser EX again". I've checked Silverlight, even tried uninstalling and then reinstalling but nothing will work??

Reading wht you are saying I agree that the problem is not the camera, cable, CD, etc... but your PC.
I assume you wife's computer is also running on Windows XP.
Can you verify that you have the administrator rights on your computer? Go under Start, Settings, Control Panel, User Accounts and be sure that close to your name is saying Administrator like in this example Another things to verify is that you don't have The Windows firewall blocking your application, again go under Control Panel and temporary disable it.
Last but not least use the ZoomBrowser 5.8 or higher.
Let me know the result.
