Kodak easyshare software will not allow choice of how to download
I recently reinstalled kodak easyshare software (big mistake) and since i am not able to choose how to download pics from any digital camera, i can only download using easyshare. i deleted easyshare and then i could not download from my kodak dx7590 at all. so again i reinstalled easyshare. my guess is that it has hidden a .dll but if so which one(s). thanks, rob

You need to change the camera driver to back to windows default. If you cannot see the camera icon under computer. Vista • Click Start icon • Right-click Computer select Properties • Select Device Manager • Go to Driver tab and select Update Driver • Select Browse my computer for driver software. • Select Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer. • Select Digital Still Camera • Hit Next XP • Click Start icon • Right-click My Computer select Properties • Select Hardware • Select Device Manager • Go to Driver tab and select Update Driver • Select Install from a list or specific location. • Select Don't search I will choose the drivers to install • Hit Next • Select Digital Still Camera • Hit Next Otherwise send me a PM for free remote assistance.

Uninstall any existing Kodak EasyShare software. Google around for Kodak EasyShare software and include the model of your camera in the search. You may have downloaded a later or earlier version of the software that doesn't support your camera.
Kodak EasyShare software is just a photo-viewing software which isn't really necessary in case you don't know.
Please follow the steps below:
Remove Easyshare Software
Click on 'Start' -> 'Settings' -> 'Control Panel' -> 'Software'
Please choose 'Kodak Easyshare Software'
Please choose 'remove'
Please click on 'next' when installation wizard shows up
Please choose 'remove' and click on 'next'
Please click on 'next' to start the removal of your Easyshare Software. Please make sure that all files of your Easyshare Software has been removed from your system successfully. For remaining the progress please go to step 2. Even if you couldn’t remove the software or it is still in the list.

This action removes Easyshare Software from your system but it won’t delete any pictures or videos.
But there is the possibility that you have to recreate your collection after reinstalling the Software.
We recommend to download always the latest version of Kodak Easyshare Software. You have either the option to download the software free of charge by following the link: http://wwwuk.kodak.com/global/en/service/downloads/dln_ekn026079.jhtml?pq-path=4509
check your computer specification.. check if your computer meets the requirement for new easyshare updates or easyshare versions.. you can check the required computer specification on the download page of the easyshare.. i have easyshare at home and i check the requirements for the software, no problem with the upgrade.. check also your security settings, sometimes the security on the computer does not allow you to do the update..
1) uninstall the software from your OS
2) run the clear utility program www.kodak.com/go/clear
3) type "regedit" w/ out the quote on the run command, then delete hkey_local_machine\software\kodak
4) run disk cleanup
remove the ff:
Downloaded Program Files
Temporary Internet Files
5) reinstall the software again at www.kodak.com/go/edl
It sounds like the software didn't install properly, uninstall the easyshare software and reinstall it. If it still doesn't load properly, then it could be a corrupt disc. Go to Kodak's support site and download the software there. I have a Kodak and I know that once you register the camera with Kodak at their site you are eligible for their software, software updates, and support. The last time I had to replace my hard drive, I had to go to Kodak and download the easyshare software and updates.
