Problems loading Twain Driver for Canon Camera

I recently purchased a Canon G6 digital camera. I loaded the software which
appeared to install correctly. Rebooted the computer and then connected the
camera. This should then have completed the installation of the Twain
driver, but it failed before completion with the words 'Upgrading Device
Driver wizard. An Error Occurred during the Installation. Access Denied'.



This final statement bothers me. What does it mean? Is there a problem with
my machine, or perhaps a conflict with other software? I have not had any
problems of this nature before when loading software.



I have an older Canon G3 camera loaded onto the same machine, but obviously
don't have it connected to my PC at the same time. This camera then fails to
connect using the Canon 'Zoom Browser' software, after the failed
installation of the G6.



I have tried just about every sequence of software installation to overcome
this problem, but without success so far. Getting desperate!



Can anyone help please?

What OS you running??
XP has the twain drivers for the G6 as native and recognizes the camera
without having to install the software. I only installed the S/W to get
to the
auto stitch and RAW processing.

I just got the G6 with the lens adapter, x2 zoom lens, 3 filter set and
an extra 511A battery.

You did remove the old driver first? You have tried the latest
drivers from powershot.com for you G6? You have adminitrative rights
on your computer (under Windows 2000/XP)? If you use XP you should
install the WIA driver:

WIA Driver 6.3.0 for Windows XP and Windows Me,
TWAIN Driver 6.5.0 for Windows 98 SE/Windows 2000

Thanks Ric for your comments.

I am using Win2000.
I thought I had the problem solved at my latest attempt, and Device Manager
shows camera as 'Canon Camera' ( no mention of the model number 'G6').
On connecting the camera, the 'Event' window opens but does not mention the
Zoom Browser. I can't even locate the camera when I open Zoom Browser
manually.
I think I have installed the wrong driver it shows as Version 6.3 (it should
be 6.5)
As I stated earlier, my G3 is still working, but access to the Zoom Browser
is missing - i.e. same as with G6
Back to square one
