How to setup EOS Utility to auto start

Currently I am using EOS utility to autoload images from my Canon 6DM2 when I connect USB cable to camera. I would rather do so when I connect the memory card to my Lexar USB 3 card reader I have.  OS is Windows 10 ver 1703. How to I configure EOS Utility to do so when I plug in teh card reader?

  • You cannot use a memory card with the EOS Utility.

I'm not sure the EOS Utility can even see a card reader. But Digital Photo Professional, Canon's photo editor that comes with all their serious cameras, can. So if you're using that, you're all set. Be careful, though: a card reader looks like just another hard drive, and it's easy to confuse it with the drive to which you've just copied your images. More than once, I've found myself editing the wrong ones.

Are you saying that “the old version” would start up when you connected a card reader, or even a thumb drive?

 

You can configure Windows to run a specific application when it detects an thumb drive.  But, I would not expect the EOS Utility to be able to “download” files from a memory card.
