installation problems with Canon camera

  ROYWIDD 21:09 09 Aug 2005

hello,i have just bought a Canon A510 digital camera,having tried to install the software,i'm getting the error message"error number:0x80070725,incompatible RPC stub".I'm running WIN98SE,can anyone please help?Also,would using a card-reader remove the need to install the cameras' software,so i can at least d/load images to my pc?

did you have the camera plugged in when you started the install? Canon normally say do not connect the camera until the software is installed.

Your suggestion of using a card reader is a good one. It's most certainly quicker and easier for me.

hello howard60,no it wasn't connected,i tried several times to install the software from the disc,but keep getting the error message,can i get round this by just using a card-reader?

thanks daconner,looks like a problem with my o/s?will a card reader do the trick?if the cam software wont install,i'd rather go down the reader route

Yes, if you aren't comfortable with that Microsoft article then use a card reader.
As I said I prefer to download my images by card reader and then use PaintShop Pro to do any fine tuning.
