Re: it works! and it's a lot faster.

I upgraded my laptop from win 7 64 to Win 8 64 and the latest version of EOS Utility works perfectly with the 5D MKII tethered to it. It was the first thing I checked as I use the Asus laptop only for tethering.

Yep it might be a x64 issue. I think the wrong driver is being loaded, the camera shows up in the device manager tree in "Portable Devices" branch along with portable hard drives etc. It should show up in the Imaging devices branch.

Can you go to your device manager and see where yours shows up? Also, right click on it and find the driver files that correspond to the 5d.

I also found this link, other guys are trying to sort this out too:
