Cannot install Digital Camera Software 7.1 on Win8.1

Coming from another thread, continuing here...



The installation process stops with an error "NG" in the installation window.


I have found an installation log. How can I upload it here?


The compatibility thing, as "shadowsports" has mentioned, has the same result without success.


Best regards

Re: Cannot install Digital Camera Software 7.1 on Win8.1

The device is a Canon Powershot SX620HS, connected via USB or WiFi. The camera is connected with win8.1.


The problem is, that when installing the latest software DCS7.1 or DCS7.2, the installation stalled. I have tried several things like installing as admin or with compatibility mode. No success. There is a entry in the servicelog when the install process breaks, but I cannot identify this. Where can I provide the log?


Best regards

I don't think this forum allows log files to be uploaded into posts.  I did see an option to allow code (not applicable for error messages), but you can less formally post the error message from the installer log if thats what you have.  We might be able to get a better idea about this issue, missing dependancy, permissions, etc. 


Or it might require a call to support.  Happy to look at it for you if you like.  Smiley Happy

Hi shadowsports,


here is the end of the installationlog, where the error occurs:


20171229223417:INSTALL:UIxCoreInstallLib:INFORMATION:CopyItem=sourcePath=C:\Users\DZrenner\AppData\Local\Temp\UIx6B5D.tmp\Microsoft.VC90.CRT.manifest,destPath=C:\Program Files (x86)\Canon\CameraWindowDC8\Microsoft.VC90.CRT\Microsoft.VC90.CRT.manifest

20171229223418:INSTALL:install:ERROR:Error=Install error

It seems that the installer makes a good job, but the cleanup process stalls and so no installation.xml is written and so on...


Hope this helps to identify the problem.


Best regards DZR

Hello DZR, 

You may wish to try deleting any remnants of the software which might be on your computer and performing a full re-install of the software.  This should clear out any errors which might have been present initially.  If the issue persists, you may wish to try installing on a different computer to see if the same error occurs.
