The olympus are generally ood little cameras. i am wondering if you are trying to install an XP oriented software to a Vista environment.

Also R click on the icon and see the properties and see where it is installing. Use explorer to go there and find the .EXE file that opens the program. Double click on it to get it to run. If it does tyhen drag that to the desktop and delete the other icon

Realtek audio not working


This is not an uncommon issue with many motherboards. There is a work-around. Lets "not" use the CD to install the audio driver software. Open the link provided by Intel;
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=18138&ProdId=2838&lang=eng
Create a folder on your desktop & name the folder, Audio. From the link above. Save the file named, AUD_allOS_5939_PV_RTL.exe, into the Audio folder. Open control panel. Than open Add/Remove programs.
Find the current Audio driver software & uninstall it. Now open the Audio folder & right click once on the file, AUD_allOS_5939_PV_RTL.exe. A pop-up window will open. Left click once on, Extract to here. Close all opened windows & restart your system.
As your system begins to start up press the F2 key to enter the bios menu. Make sure your audio setting is set to [Enable]or to [AC97]. Save & exit the bios. The system will auto restart.
When windows finishes loading, open windows device manager.
Look through the icons listed. If you see, unknown PCI device or an upside down yellow pair shaped icon with an explanation point in it. This will be your missing audio driver software.
Right click once on the explanation point, or unknown PCI device. A window will open & Left click once on “update driver”. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Left click on the green check mark once & it will go away.
Click the browse button, click the + sign next to my computer. Find the “Audio” folder on your desktop. Left click once on the Audio folder so it is highlighted.
Than click OK.
Windows will search within the folder & install the correct driver software. If by some chance windows does not, repeat the above & open the Audio folder. Find the “setup.exe” & click on it once. Than click, OK. Windows should install the driver. Close all opened windows & restart your system. Test your audio. To setup the Mic open windows control panel & open Sounds and Audio Devices

Good luck!

Volume icon in taskbar


You experience one of the following symptoms on a Windows XP-based computer:

* The Volume icon is not displayed in the notification area at the far right of the taskbar.
* When you try to add the volume control icon to the notification area, you receive the following error message: "Windows cannot display the volume control on the taskbar because the Volume Control program has not been installed. To install it use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel. "

Therefore, you cannot start the Volume Control program and cannot adjust the volume and sound level settings of your computer.

There are two possible causes of this problem:

* The Volume icon has not been added to the notification area of your computer. (The Volume icon is not displayed automatically when you first install Windows XP.)
* The Sndvol32.exe file is damaged or missing.

Solution:

Method 1: Add the Volume icon

To add the Volume icon to the notification area of your computer, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. Copy and paste or type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
mmsys.cpl
3. Click to select the Place volume icon in the taskbar check box.
4. Click OK.

If the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area of your computer, you are finished. If you cannot add the Volume icon or if you receive an error message when you try to add it, the Sndvol32.exe file might be damaged or missing. Go to method 2.

Method 2: Save a new copy of the Sndvol32.exe file on your hard disk

If the Sndvol32.exe file is damaged or missing, you must extract a new copy of the Sndvol32.exe file from the Windows XP CD and save it on your computer's hard disk.

Prerequisites
This method requires you to have your Windows XP installation CD.

To extract a copy of the Sndvol32.exe file from the Windows XP CD and save it on your computer’s hard disk, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD drive or DVD drive. Press and hold the SHIFT key as you insert the CD to prevent it from starting automatically.
2. Click Start, and then click Run.
3. Copy and paste or type the following command in the Open box, and then click OK:
cmd
The command prompt opens.
4. Type the drive letter of the CD drive or DVD drive, type a colon, and then press ENTER. For example, if your computer’s CD drive is drive E, type the following, and then press ENTER:
e:
5. Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
cd i386
6. Copy and paste or type the following, and then press ENTER:
expand sndvol32.ex_ system_root\system32\sndvol32.exe

Note: system_root is the path and folder name where the Windows system files are located on your computer. This is usually C:\Windows. If the folder that contains the Windows system files on your computer is C:\Windows, type the following, and then press ENTER:
expand sndvol32.ex_ c:\windows\system32\sndvol32.exe
Note There is a space between "ex_" and "c:\windows" in this command.

7. Type exit to exit the command prompt, and then press ENTER.
8. Verify that you can start Volume Control and that the Volume icon is displayed in the notification area (if you selected this option in method 1).

Hopefully the Volume icon is now displayed in the notification area.

Troubleshooting


Restore missing Help and Support Files 1. Click Start, Run and type %windir%\INF
2. Locate the file pchealth.inf, right-click and choose Install
pchealth1.jpg There will be two files namely PCHealth.INF and PCHealth.PNF. You'll need to right-click on the INF file (identified by a text pad and Gear icon in it) and choose Install.
3. In the next step, you'll be asked for the Windows XP CD (to extract dataspec.xml and many other files). Insert your Windows XP CD and point to the i386 folder in the CD.
pchealth2.png 4. Click OK. This restores missing Help and Support files.
note: The PCHealth.INF installation routine is not complete, as it does not register Help and Support completely, nor does it create the helpsvc service and other registry keys. At this point of time, nothing may happen when you start Help and Support, or it exhibits an error message mentioning the Help and Support service is missing.
Step II - End the Help and Support services Click Start, click Run and type Taskmgr and click OK. This opens Task Manager. Click the Process tab. Terminate the following processes if running:
  • helpsvc.exe
  • helphost.exe
  • helpctr.exe
Reinstall Help and Support
Click Start, click Run and type cmd.exe, and click OK.
In Command Prompt, type the following commands one by one and press {ENTER} after each line. Alternately, you can copy the commands below to Notepad, save the file with .bat extension (e.g. helpfix.bat) and run it.
net stop helpsvc
cd /d %windir%\pchealth\helpctr\binaries
start /w helpsvc /svchost netsvcs /regserver /install
start /w helpsvc /register
start /w helpctr /regserver

Installation operation failed 00001603 Olympus Master 2


After contacting Olympus in hamburg, the problem was solved and installation of the new software (version 2.06) was possible.
There is - however - a bug when you choose the automatic update system. Don not do that and the program is running OK!

The advises from Olympus - Hamburg:

1. Download MSXML.msi from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=3144b72b-b4f2-46da-b4b6-c5d7485f2b42&displaylang=en.
2. Run msxml.msi and choose Remove to uininstall msxml4.
3. Run msxml.msi a second time and install msxml4.

restart your PC and install the program

Master Software 2 help!


Ditto. Installing on XP w/SP1. Plenty of hard drive space. Pentium 4 w/2GB RAM. Tried different drives. Tried copying CD-ROM to hard drive to verify it was reading of the CD ok. No problem copying but still failing on installation. I also tried by-passing the initial Olympus menu and launching the .msi directly, but that fails in the same way. I haven't found anything on the Olympus website about this, but note their website generates tons of Javascript errors which is not encouraging with respect to Olympus's attention to quality. (This is my first and probably last Olympus.)

Tried pulling the XD media and reading it on the computer but my computer wanted to format the thing (never seen that with SD or Compact Flash, what gives?) so that was a no for the moment.

Finally, I went to the files that I had copied from the CD to my hard drive and double-clicked the OM2_Pack_Framework_2_0_4.cab file found in the OLYMPUS\OLYMPUS Master 2 directory. That contains a bunch of .cab files, that I extracted to another directory. In there, I found a application.cab, which I then extracted to yet another directory. In there, I found OLYMPUS Master.exe. That ran fine when I double clicked on it, but I still had the problem of not being able to read the XD directly, so I hooked the USB up to the camera with the XD back in the camera and was able to transfer the images in that manner.
