Does anyone know if the Pentax K100 Camera Software will install on a PC with Windows Millenium Edition installed?

I know it says Windows XP, but sometimes software will still work on older operating sytems. I downloaded SilkyPix Free V3 software and it installed ok on my Win ME PC and opens pictures.

Did you try to install it? It may just flat out refuse.... The Pentax software uses part of Silkypics but the GUI is totally different, and probably will cause you no end of trouble. Couldn't say for sure though. If I remember correctly some DS/D users had to use an Optio developing software to get Win 98 to play w/ the RAW files.
EDIT: That Optio thing may have had more to do w/ getting the images from the camera to the box though. Just remebered that..

The free SilkyPix 3 software mentioned in another thread here installed fine on the Win ME PC. It Opens pictures OK, although I don't have any Pentax K100 RAW files to try though.

Anyone know where I could find a K100 RAW file?

It's a "D" file but if you want to just test the software, it will do.
Just checked the file.. opps.. it's a little dark.. oh well it will give you something to play with.
