    Yeah, I know it's old, but it suits my purpose. I just upgraded to XP from
    W2K (see, I like old stuff) and I can't get the camera installed. Not only
    from the installation CD, but from drivers downloaded from the Internet.
    The driver is A40WI410EN.exe, and is described as a driver for Windows
    ME/XP. I also have a driver that is described as for Windows 98/2000.
    Neither works.

    What happens is that the driver installation finishes up, and I am told the
    installation will continue when I plug the camera in. But, it doesn't.
    Nothing happens.

    I tried using the wizard and pointing it to the .inf files in the
    installation folders, but that doesn't work, either.

    I had a time getting it installed in W2K as well - same problem. I can't
    remember what I did to solve it - too long ago.

    Ideas?

    My computer has a card reader built in. Getting the card out of the camera
    is a PITA, and I don't like swapping it back and forth. Also, I want to be
    able to use the utilities like PhotoStitch.

    You shouldn't need to load a driver for winxp although canon do supply
    one, the same driver comes with xp. I don't have any canon software
    loaded in my current setup for my A95. I gave my A40 to my son and I
    don't believe he loaded any canon software.
    As far as photo stitch is concerned, I'm not sure if you can install
    only that, however, photostitch is a separate program and you can use it
    with a card reader.
