Post How to install Pentax Digital Camera Utility without CD

Many people are looking for a good way to install the Pentax software, without the CD.

Why should people do that? At first because they lost the CD, or are to lazy to search for it in their cluttered mesh.

    At first download the software from this site

    Second rename a SD card or usb-drive to S-SW90




    Than start the installer you downloaded before. Follow the normal steps you always get when installing a .msi file.

    Next you will get a message about the installation disc. Push OK and go on. The software will install as expected!

That's it!

Download the software from where?

Is it legal?

I don't use it myself but you can down load it from Pentax here , but it is referred to as an 'update', so I don't know if it relies on a previous version being present on your PC.

The update you download is a full version which will be installed over the old version .Pentax wants you to install first the version from the CD. But if you lose it, you can't install the software anymore.

The trick I described is a workaround for the CD check. The software can be downloaded from the Pentax site (not illegal).

Many thanks

I've bought, some years ago, an used camera PENTAX K100D and I don't have the original CD with the software "photo browser"

Grazie mille
