I normally use Faststone for RW2 and FZ150, I downloaded this, but Win7 64-bit cannot open this with MS own client or other MS programs

What are you using that needed this patch installed?

Re: Microsoft Camera Codec Pack update - not XP
In reply to AaronBre, Apr 20, 2012

Aaron - thanks for the heads-up. The notice does say Vista and later but I tried it anyway with XP. No go I'm afraid. Maybe this'll tip the balance on getting around to installing the Win7 upgrade pack (x3) I bought. Stuart

I Recommend NOT Installing This
In reply to yellodog, Apr 20, 2012

I tried it yesterday and I was unable to open jpeg files. I uninstalled the codec and my system returned to normal. Not sure what the problem is but it just doesn't work for me.
