Question about Canon PowerShot A460 Digital Camera
I have purchased yesterday an A460 model digital camera(Canon).The problem is that it is not effectively communicating with the computer... Let me escribe the problem: (i)I installed the CD first in my computer. Restarted. (ii)Then inserted the cable in the USB port in my comp and the other terminal in the digital port of the camera. (iii)I switched on the power of the camera. (iv)A window saying "select from the following programmes" appears. (v)But no programme is displayed-a white blank page.Even,the OK menu is disabled.cancel menu is working. (vi)The manual says that the window will come and you have to select a programme from the list. [I forgot to say that the programmes in the list are the programmes that I installed via the CD]. Please help me... Appreciating your help, Kolahal Bhattacharya.
If your computer came with Vista preloaded, please try this:
From Control Panel, create a new user with admin priviledges
Log off. Log on as that new user.
Reinstall the program as the new user
This works with some programs, and not with others. I'd be interested to see if this is one of the programs that won't work under a manufacturer's tweaked OEM install, since there are some programs that won't. It may explain why some Vista users can get it working and some can't - those with the full retail or self-upgraded upgrade version won't have the problem since they won't be using specially "tweaked" profiles created by their machine's manufacturer to bypass Windows Vista restrictions on driver updates.
Good luck, and if it works - please post back and let people know.
