Camera window doest not detect camera while windows does
After reading the thread I still do not find an answer to my problem
My camera is Canon A-460. After installing the software on my Windows vista computer and plugging the camera in a direct USB port, the camera is recognized by the computer. but when I try to download via camera window, a CW window appears that says the camera is not detected.I called Canon customer service; we upgraded to version 6.0 of Zoom browser; same results. We went throug services.msc and made sure that SSDP and WIA were properly configured (that is, activated); same result. Then we stopped all non-microsoft processes ; same result; we uninstalled all canon software and registry keys and reinstall the software; same result. The person at Canon said it is probably a problem with Windows. After reading this tread, i looked for Canon Cal Library 8 in the services but I cannot find it. Of course, I can download my photos through windows successfully, but I am puzzled by this problem and I wonder if there is somethiong wrong with my computer. The guy at cannon swears that version 6.0 of zoom browser and camera window if fully compatible with vista. Help would be much appreciated.
Thank you in advance
Still without CameraWindow for Canon PowerShot A570 IS
I wonder if you solve this problem. I use Win XP x64 and have identical symptoms of using my Canon PowerShot A570 IS.

I'm confused... because C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\CAL\CALMAIN.exe seems to work correctly.
I must add that I have problem with instaling origianal software for Canon PowerShot A570 IS
CameraWindow DC_DV ver5.4.5 for ZoomBrowser EX cannont be installed on this computer.and use Canon EOS Solution Disk (I also have this camera - it works without any problems).
Check that required software has already been installe and that your computer meets the minimum system requirements.
Installation has been stopped.
Thanks for any advice.
