• Before installing Canon RAW Codec, install an application that supports Windows Imaging Component.
• If the Canon RAW Codec and the RAW image processing function (RAW Image Task) of Zoom Browser EX are used together, shooting data that has been edited by the Canon RAW Codec may be initialized and return to the settings for shooting. In order to prevent this phenomenon, it is necessary to use ZoomBrowser EX 6.0.1 (RAW Image Task 3.1) or later.
Please download the latest version of the software from here. ZoomBrowser EX
• There may be cases where the RAW file metadata edited on a computer on which the latest Canon RAW Codec is installed may not available for browsing under on computers with Canon RAW Codec 1.3 or earlier installed. When sharing a RAW file, please ensure the same version of the codec is used.
• Because there has been a change in the RAW image processing for the EOS DIGITAL products, there may differences in RAW image display and printing results when compared with those of Canon RAW Codec 1.3.0 or earlier.
* If the Canon RAW Codec is originally installed on a PC running Windows Vista that is subsequently upgraded to Windows 7 the codec may not function correctly.  If upgrading to Windows 7 from Windows Vista uninstall the Canon RAW Codec prior to upgrading and reinstall once the upgrade to Windows 7 is complete.
