Did you just purchase this Canon Camera brand new?

If you did please to keep your warrantee valid contact Canon tech support. If you do something here that should not be done it might void your warrantee.

Besides Canon knows all of the error messages for its cameras and that makes all of the difference in the world, they are the experts or should be.

Here is some information on the Install Shield error message, possible causes, and ways to correct:


Was this the only error message?

Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.

Do you have SP2 and all subsequent critical updates installed on the computer?

There was an update for the Microsoft Installer Engine included in one of the updates and if you do not have it that may be the reason for your problem.

In any case, the link listed by jgweed may be of some help in understanding the problem although Win XP had the installer - but you may need the update.

Go to Windows Updates and download and install any updates it tells you that you need.
