Installing DPP without original CD?

  1. Hi folks.

    I have a 10D which I have owned since new and have lost the cd that came with it. I now wish to install
    DPP 3.2 and have downloaded it for my OSX machine, but it won't install without at least one of the
    original applications.

    Having had a quick look around the Canon website I can only find 'updaters' and no original installations -
    do you know if these are available online? I can't see any reason why they shouldn't be.

    Any help much appreciated.

  2. I have read the same question in the forum in the past, try looking for it. I recall the answer was that the updater is actually the full installation, and you can tweak the Windows Registry (don't know the corresponding under OSX) to make the updater believe the application is already installed.
  3. JC, we have the same exact problem yesterday. i want to install DPP on my office desktop but cant find downlaodable installer online. but i still have my original CD thats why i copied the installer on my thumb drive to use here at my office pc. goodluck if you could find online!

  4. For Windows, all you have to do is make a registry key file containing the following:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


    Apply to the registry, and then install the "update".
    So, in other words, it's just checking for a bare framework in place. I don't know what the OSX equivalent to this would be.
  5. Thanks for that Lance.

    As far as I know, all the Canon software is designed to work only with Canon products, which makes me wonder *why* Canon puts these impediments in place.
  6. Try this site.
  7. That's not a file format I recognise, Glenn. Is there a disk image or installer package
  8. I did a bit of sleuthing and for us enlightened Mac people, the link required is:

    ...which just worked for me :)
  9. This is the reg code for Windows 64-bit users...
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOS Utility]
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX]​
  10. I just found this!
