Software installation problems

While attempting to install the software, the 1st thing I see is an error that my "screen resolution is not sufficient to execute digital camera solution disc" I can't get past this in any way, to load the software. the computer runs windows 2000 and should be robust enough to run the software, it ran the predecessor software (on older Canon digital model) without problems. HELP

Re: software installation problems

You do not need software for the computer to read the camera to upload images. The supplied disc with digital cameras is best left in the box let windows do the work If you would like an images editor then downloaf Picasa which is free or invest in a full editing software such as Coral paintshop pro or one of the Serif range

Trying to install software for Canon Powershot A640 on a Acer Aspire One Netbook. Receive error message "The screen resolution to execute Digital Camera Solution Disk is not sufficient."

Skip the installing of any software, unless you like the Canon editing or viewing software, if that is on the cd.
Get a card reader for this machine, and skip any drivers whatsoever.
By using a card reader/writer it is not necessary to get any software or drivers on your machine from Canon. The card reader will read as another drive.

While trying to install Canon Camera software, I'm getting a message that says ''screen resolution to execute digital camera solution disk is not sufficient.

Select the "Start" menu in the lower left corner of your computer monitor screen. Select "Control Panel", then double-click on "Display".

Click on the upper "Settings" tab, then move the slider bar to the right, to at least 1024 x 768 pixel. Then hit Apply or OK. This will increase the screen resolution of your computer monitor so that it will be compatible with the Canon software.

When I install the cd , a error sign comes up

Which software is this? What is the error? If it is screen resolution, here are the steps:

click start/control panel/display/settings and adjust screen resolution to the high side. Once installed, you may adjust the resolution wherever you prefer.

I am not sure if this is your error, but it is a common problem and a quite easy fix.

Hope this helps!

Screen resolution not sufficient to install ver.30.0 software.

I had the same issue with my Netbook. In order to get the software onto my netbook I had to use an external monitor. I set up my HD monitor as the main monitor through the graphics driver. I set the main monitor from notebook to monitor. Then I installed the package and set the main screen back to notebook. I can use the EOS Utility which allows my to download my raw images and remotely control my camera, but I cannot run DPP. I hope this is of help

Under your control panel in "Display" go to the settings tab and slide the resolution bar to:

Screen resolution: 1024 x 768 pixels or more,
Color quality: Medium (16 bit) or more

That should do it.
