Hi Rodger.

I noticed that the latest version of DPP no longer has the option to select the GPU. Must be hard wired now.

BTW: I know what'll happen now. Someone will cite the URL for hardware specifications. Here it is: https://cam.start.canon/hy/S002/manual/html/UG-05_Synthetic_0080.html.

Computer #3 has i7, has 32 Gb and I confirmed with son - definitely the GPU support is there. What he says is probably needs something called high CUDA cores... go figure. And he said, looking at the specs demand he's pretty sure will significantly hog the computer.

I use for Day to day straight DPP and publish to friends/family. I am no professional, don't need fancy tools like LS, DT, Capture One, etc. I don't do pixel peeking and hate those who do and finally not hung over some crazy stuff like "slightly soft at corners" mumbo-jumbo as long as I have a semi-professional camera and lens.

In order to further reduce the time it takes for me to process via DPP, I decided to try this new offering (pop-up keeps coming up) of this new neural processing tool.

Why crap? Well - guess what - I tried across 3 computers. Computer #1 - Intel i5 with 16 Gb RAM and a decent photo processing ($100) GPU card, computer #2  - AMD Ryzen with its in-built GPU (I use it for web surfing mostly) and computer #3 - with i7 32 Gb RAM and a GPU which satisfies my teen son playing stuff like Fortnight.

Across all 3 the message came - unable to determine your hardware meets our requirement type. I said: well, h$$$ with you. There are many products quite good, very well accepted by photography community I can use instead! To use your stuff if I have to shell out $300+ for a video card or have to upgrade my whole PC .. nah, not worth it. Especially when I don't think its benefits are that high. Oh wait... they (Canon) want to even charge (subscription fee) for it? Go figure...

The error message you posted states “unable to determine”, not that your setups aren’t compatible. Do you have a firewall block that needs to be opened so that the Canon website can access your computer to query your hardware configuration?

It should be mentioned in documentation what the product needs....

If your computer meets these specs, which are listed in the download details, give Canon a call at (866) 261-9362 and see if they can assist.

I checked my firewall logs - there's nothing, no blocks.

As I said before someone I knew will send this. That's the 1st. thing I checked. Meets and exceeds. But software complained. As I said it's a money-making tool and not worth spending any more time trying to figure it out. I'm not calling Canon for all that'll happen is they'll direct me to the same URL.
