Question

Dear all 

My name is Sergio and I new in the forum

Just bought BYE and installed it in windows 7 with a 60Da. There was no problem at all.

However i tried to install it in a Windows XP Notebook for my second gear; a Canon 350D and i was not able to make it work

During installation following message appeared (free translation from spanish - pics attached)

quote...

unable to execute file:

C:\programs files\BackyardEOSv3.2\BinaryRivers.AviEncoderProviders.Bytescout.Register.exe

CreateProcess failed; code 193.

1% is not a Win32 valid application

unquote...

Nontheless the BYE icon appeard in the desk stop.

Once clicked the program to run following message popped up

quote...

C:\programs files\BackyardEOSv3.2\BinaryRivers.BackyardEOS .Start.Camera2.exe is not a Win32 valid application

unquote

Any guidance how to solve these problems and make the BYE work in Windows XP, will be highy appreciated

All the best and thanks a lot 

Sergio

The short answer is Windows XP is not supported.

.Net frame has not been updated for years on XP and XP does not have the Canon drives built-in, you need to install from manually from the CD that came with the camera.

Beyond this I can't provide any help on XP because it is no longer supported.

Hello

Thanks for the swift feedback.

Is there a way to run BYE with a Canon 350D in Windows 7? 

The conection message states it has to be Windows 32 bits , so I presume it should be windows 7,  32 bits. Is this correct?

Thanks a lot again

Sergio

Sergio,

Yes, others  have been successful getting BYE to work with DIGIC II cameras on Windows 7, but there are no guarantees.

The key thing to understand is that Windows 7 does not have a driver for the 350D, so you must install it. You may be able to install the driver from the CD that came with the camera. You may also be able to download the driver from the Canon Support web site. 

If you can get Windows 7 to recognize the camera, and you select the Canon210 SDK when you connect in BYE then there is a high likelihood that it will connect. However, the capabilities of the camera are limited. The biggest limitations are that since the camera does not have LiveView that you will need to use Snap images for focusing and without LiveView the Planetary imaging and DriftAlign functions will not work. Also you will need an additional cable to control the shutter for BULB exposures. You may be better off finding a good used camera that is fully functional with BYE.
