There are two versions. Please can anyone explain the difference? I have Vista with an Intel dual core processor - any help telling me which to download would be gratefully received.

Got 64 bit Vista or 7?  Use the amd64 download.
Got 32 bit Vista or 7? Use the x86 download.

What? No support for the 60D? Or T3i?  Sheesh.  Microsoft, only a year behind the times.

About time! This combined with the built-in preview pane (the big one that is toggle-able) in the regular window browser in windows make it really awesome.

Thank you.  I wish Microsoft could use english as well and just tell us which drivers are for which of their many OS systems.  Would it really cost them that much for a simple explanation like you just provided.  AMD sounds more like the chip maker rather than something else.  Microsoft get with it.  People like simple.

Seems like a simple thing to do but maybe not. I also have to say "Thank You!"

I'm hoping that its the same as the 7D & 550D - need to try this tonight!

What is the difference between this and Canon's own RAW codec?

tried both versions on my win7 64 bit.... installation is aborted with an error message (no access to a certain registry entry.. and yes i have full admin rights on my PC).

i don´t really need it but im curious if others have the same issue.

Ok, this is great, but what do I do with it? I still can't open my .CR2 files in Photoshop CS2 because Adobe ACR 3.6 doesn't support my 7D and Photoshop CS2 doesn't support the latest version of ACR.

It seems like the only thing this new download is good for is being able to preview RAW files without opening a heavyweight program like Photoshop or Digital Photo Professional.

I'm curious as to what people will do with this.

I have the same error.  I tried the X86 version first, then the AMD64.  I am wondering if my registery got messed up doing that.  The key they refer to does not exist in my registry.  I'll try it on a different pc later.

well if you read the provided info you will see that VIEWING IS the ONLY thing this codecs are good for.

what else do you expect?

M$ will not give you a free raw converter....
M$ will not add support in Adobe programs.
