Is there a problem using DPP with Window 7?
« on: January 23, 2012, 06:06:50 AM »

When I try to open DPP on my Win7 laptop, i get message something like "DPP needs at least 1024 x 768 dpi and True Colour" and it refuses to start. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling - makes no difference. I'm sure i have usd DPP previously on this laptop without a problem.

is there a fix for this?

And your video settings (Pixel, bit depth) are?
DPP won't start if anything lesser is configured.

Mmm, that's odd, I had no troubble with dpp on my windows 7 machine, maybe a windows update, or you may try to download the lates version of dpp from canon's website, maybe that'll do the trick.

Save as .VBS and run it from Explorer. Screenwidth and ScreenHeight are reported correctly?
