Warning: There is a newer version available: GetCanon 1.6 RC

I just uploaded the beta version of GetCanon 1.6. This is what's new:

  • built against Canon SDK 7.3 - added support for PowerShot S2 IS, PowerShot A520, PowerShot A510, Digital IXUS 700 and Digital IXUS 50
  • better error handling
  • new version checking at startup

The translations are not in place yet and as this is beta it means it is not fully tested yet.


Please report any problems in comments or through my contact form.

[Update] I updated the beta a bit. Reinstall is recommended.
[Update] Yet another update, let's call this beta3. I added almost all translations and updated the installer.
[Update of the last update] I uploaded the wrong file. Sorry, I blame the weather.
[Update] Yet another beta. Smaller installer and another nasty crash fixed. Can anyone still reproduce the crash?

It's working.
No more exception error in Winxp.

I downloaded and installed V1.5 on Win XP SP2, and it crashed at start-up.
Then I installed 1.6 beta4 and it works!
Nice and convenient tool. Thanks a lot. Me and my G5 are happy :-)

Thanks, Pascanon. I'm still waiting for new German translator to help me with the new translations but without any luck.

I also installed v1.5 and it crashed. Installing v1.6 beta4 fixed it. :-)
