Yup, the latest version. I used the latest version from the Canon website as well as another version which is later even than the one found on the canon website (?!).
Sheesh, this is why you just get yourself a card reader.

by installing as administrator, I meant actually right-clicking the install file and selecting the "Run as Administrator" option. I had a problem with a game not working and that made it work. It has to do with UAC not allowing the installer to copy some files, even if you have UAC turned totally off! 7 isn't perfect. May not have anything to do with your problem, but can't hurt to try. And do check what sparhawk suggested and see if Windows is even recognizing your camera let alone EOS Utility.

Tomorrow I'll find my EOS Utility install disk, dust it off, and see it I can get it working. I don't think I've used since I've had 7 anyways.

lol ...
Yeah, I tried restoring to previous backup and reinstalling by right clicking and installing as admin.
I have a card reader. It works fine, problem is, it doesn't import under dates as folders which is more convenient for me.
The computer does not see the camera at all, not as a storage media, HDD, or anything else.

Here is more news -
I spoke to Canon. Supposedly there is no WIN 7 driver. The driver that it relies on is a driver called WIA which is provided as part of WIN 7. I told them that for some reason my install did not seem to recognise my camera. They todl me to go to MS.
Did some searches ... there is no WIA driver for WIN7. However, I know there is a driver somewhere as others have managed to get their cameras and computers talking. But there are also a lot like me who can't get it to work.
If anyone has got their computer and cameras talking, can you please do a search for a WIA driver on your computers and send me a copy please?

Tech support hell. Not a good place to be. I'll look for this mysterious WIA driver when I get home, and for that matter, see if my copy of 7 even recognizes my 7D (I do firmware updates and the like with my Vista laptop ).

One other place to try if you haven't already are the POTN forums, which is a Canon only forum, lots of knowledgeable people there.

roflmao ... that was only a summary I gave you. The first time I called, they told me to call some other company for the driver disks! I called the other company and they said they only had drivers for up to Vista.
Then I called Canon again, and I have to convince the guy that although he may be right that the camera may not need Canon drivers to communicate with the computer, mine nevertheless cannot communicate with my computer (I don't think he considered the possibility that I wouldn't be calling unless my camera REALLY is not communicating with my computer!). I don't think he believed me (perhaps he thought I called only because I enjoyed his company on the phone, who knows?!) so I told him to do a search for Canon EOS and win7 as the search terms. It was only then that he told me to go to MS!

Anyway, I would really appreciate it if you can find that driver in your install. I am also off to that forum you mentioned ... thanks!

Just saw the announcement on DPReview about the Noktor 50mm f/0.95. Seems like it would be a hell of a lens for micro four thirds (pity it won't be on other mounts)
