Essentials:

Download Canon Software!

Canon 400DSo, I started looking around for my disc which contained the software for my (Canon EOS Digital SLR Camera) Canon Digital Rebel XTi camera and I just can’t find it. So, how on earth would I get the software for the camera if Canon only offers the ‘Upgrade’ version on their website?

I was really surprised that Canon did not offer the base installation of their software via their website especially when their software doesn’t even require a serial number to activate or install. But you can however find a multitude of software upgrades on their various download pages.

So, if you fine yourself asking the following questions then this is the answer you’ve been waiting for.

Where can I download ZoomBrowser Ex
1. Where can I download Digital Photo Professional
2. Where can I download EOS Capture
3. Where can I download EOS File Viewer
4. Where can I download PhotoStitch

 
Here’s the answer! You simply go to the Canon download website for the XTi which is: http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=215&modelid=14256 and download the latest ‘upgrade’ version of the application.

Then you use the power of the Windows Registry to do the rest of the work for you.

You can skip the next step if you would rather just download the attached .REG file at the bottom of this article.

To do this make a file and call it canon.reg The icon should change to something that looks like a piece of paper with stacks of little blue ice cubes on it. Then open it using Notepad and paste the following into it.

code    
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\DPP]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\EOS Capture]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\EOSViewerUtility]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\PhotoStitch]

Copy between the two comment lines and do not include them within the canon.reg file. Make sense?

Save the file and double click it. Then click ‘YES’ and then ‘OK.’

That’s it! Now you can go about installing any of the software applications from the Canon website.

How does this work? Well, you see, Canon software checks your Windows registry for previously installed versions before you can install the upgrade version that you get from the website. We’re just ‘tricking’ the Canon software to think that you already have some of their applications installed.

Some of the older versions of the Canon software allowed you to extract the downloaded executable using a program like WinRAR an then manually run the install which bypassed the registry check. It looks like Canon has upgraded their download packages so that you can no longer easily extract them.

Good Luck,
Tom

    Thanks for publishing this! I first had to download and install a European version after updating the registry, but I was then able to install the latest US version (ZoomBrowser EX 6.3.1). Good work!

    First of all-Thank you so much-a real lifesaver. I am not able to get the ZoomBrowser to download. It looks like the last post is addressing it, but I'm not sure what to do with those directions. I would really appreciate your help.

    zb631upd_en.exe queries 'Settings' sub-key, and tries 'Install' is not found. You'll need something like this: ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX\Settings] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX\Install] ----------------------------------------

    Many thanks for providing this guide. It's clear and unambiguous. If you have a spare moment, perhaps you would offer a link to a User Guide for Zoombrowser EX; there must be one somewhere. I've searched and can find only OOD ones. Meanwhile, I'll struggle on, trying things out... HS

  173. Pinwire Wednesday - 30 / 06 / 2010 Reply
    @aj: There should be a comment here which matches your operatiing system. By the way...this solution only works for PC and not Mac. Once you have the file made and it has the icon you describe, you need to double click it and the contents of the .reg file should be entered into the Windows Registry.

    Okay, either I'm stupid or just don't know about getting into the registry. I know it said make a file called canon.reg but with what program? Wordperfect? I also didn't see a download of the reg file. I tried regedit but couldn't find where to cut and paste so did nothing there. I'm sorry for sounding incompetent but I've done this before a very long time ago, I just cannot seem to figure out how to do this and need a step by step. Thanks
  186. Clayton Thursday - 11 / 11 / 2010 Reply
    Mel, Just make a text file, then replace '*.txt' with 'canon.reg'. Then open the file up in notepad and paste command lines in. Make sure you also include 'Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00' up the top of the file so that the Registry Editor recognises the file as being compatible. I hope this helped!

    Ok, so what if you cabn't install the drivers for the camera? I reinstalled Windows XP Pro, and then before I installed the software for the camera (Rebel XTi), my wife plugged it in. for some reason my laptop did not properly recognize the camera, and I have a yellow exclamation mark in device manager for "Canon digital Camera" under Other Devices. It does not appear under imaging, and does not apper under the Scanner & Camera applet in control panel. I've tried removing it, and hacking the registry, but no dice. I've tried reinstalling from the original CD, no dice. I've stumbled around the registry, deleted various Canon related entries (DO NOT DO THAT UNLESS YOU ARE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING). and still no dice. Any suggestions? I really don't want to have to format and reinstall XP...

    I keep trying to do this but cant seem to figure it out. Made the file that 19ninety said to. I'm running Windows 7 (64x) but when I download the file and try to "update" it ask me to insert the disc. I clicked on the original file and it said it updated the registry but I'm just not sure if I did something wrong? Are you suppose to format the text to how it looks on this page or just copy and paste (that's what I did). Hope someone can lead me in the right direction.
    • Pinwire Friday - 16 / 12 / 2011 Reply
      Spring, you should format it like 19ninety did. Starting with 'Windows Registry...' and ending with 'Utility]'
  201. 19ninety Sunday - 01 / 04 / 2012 Reply
    Hi again! Odd how its about a year on and I'm re-installing and having to re-do this process. Firstly, thank you Zeger for the correction, I hope my error didn't cause to many issues for people. Secondly, Spring - I think the problem your having could be because of the way Windows Copy/Pastes the text from this blog to the file. When you Copy and Paste it into the file, you have to change it from this: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOS Utility] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\DPP] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\PhotoStitch [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOS Capture] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOSViewerUtility] To look like this: Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOS Utility] HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\DPP] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\PhotoStitch [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOS Capture] [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Canon\EOSViewerUtility] So that Windows Registry reads the information correctly. Its hard to explain but the format of the text changes when copied, it replaces the new lines (Enter Key) with spaces when copied. Image one below is how the file will look when copied. Image two is how it should look before saving it. http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg272/19ninety/Canon%20Utilities/Canon1.jpg http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg272/19ninety/Canon%20Utilities/Canon2.jpg Hope this helps!

    Go on the Cannon USA Tech Support site for Rebel XSi and check for all downloads. They have a file that allows you to download an install of EOS, Style Editor, and Pro without a CD. Run the download and the 3 programs are installed and then can be updated. For Zoom, there is an install that asks for your camera SN. Type in the SN and it installs, then download the Zoom updates. There is another free photo program download available, but it seems to duplicate other programs functions and the download is over 140 MB. I'm running Vista 64 and the Cannon site ID it correctly for the downloads.
