    E-5, Oly Viewer 3 update issue

    When I try to check for updates on my E-5 using Viewer 3 I get this message: "Unable to use this function on this camera", before it even tries to check for updates,

    This is academic as I know the camera and lenses are up to date but I would like it to work in the future.

    Thanks,

    Ivor

    Thanks, I still have Viewer 2 and iB and can do it that way, just not sure why V3 doesn't want to work.

    The problem might be a conflict between "2" and "3". I seem to remember reading somewhere that Oly recommends that you remove "2" after installing "3". I'm pretty sure that I had to do that when I went from "Master" to "Viewer".

    Thumbs down Re: E-5, Oly Viewer 3 update issue

    I have tried to load and use Viewer 3 a number of times since it's inception, and even with the latest update on my XP servpac3 machine at the store, it refuses to open and freezes up the puter . I give up, Viewer 3 is worthless, glad I never updated it from 2 on my 2 win 7 machines.
    Ticks me off because I cannot view ORFs at my counter to show my files to clients, even after loading the Olympus Raw Codec.

    Re: E-5, Oly Viewer 3 update issue

    Baffling. I have not had a problem with any of the (Viewer 3) updates on any of our computers. Two with winXP(sp3) and one with win8. I do still check for camera and lens updates (full knowing that everything is up to date) and have not had a problem either through the camera updater or Viewer3.

    I've never had a problem either. I don't happen to have an E-5 though.

    LOL, I guess it's worthless if you can't load it

    First of all, you could just use FastStone Image Viewer (free download) to view the orf's..

    Second, IIRC when I purchased the E-5 I could not view its orf's in Windows Photo Viewer and a few other programs I use. The Oly codec was last updated before the E-5 release.

    Ended up downloading and purchasing ($15) FastPicture Viewer Codec Pack. Worked like a charm.
