This is the Nikon D200 not a Canon 200D, so perhaps the upgrade to the pre-release version is not necessary???

However there is a note in the BYN Supported Cameras list that says that BYN needs to be run in Vista SP2 Compatibility mode for the D200, so you may need to modify the shortcut that you use to launch BYN.

You are correct that you should not need a BULB shutter control cable to connect BYN with the camera. and to take short exposures. Only the regular USB cable is required. It is good that Windows sees the camera. This means that the low-level driver was loaded.

Are you sure that you are choosing the correct driver/SDK in BYN at connect time? I am really a Canon guy so may be off-base here. Older cameras may need an older version of the Nikon SDK. Especially if Nikon has dropped support for that camera in newer versions of the SDK.
