well, just did a little research and it appears it will not load on w98. wME seems to be the oldest os it can be loaded on. hopefully i will not shoot more than 220 images on this little trip. i had wanted to get quite a few mountain shots to try out PSCS HDR functions...

I don't know about this Pentax software. It will not work on my pc running XP. I tried to uninstall it, and it won't unistall-some message about not being able to perform this task, so when I tried to reinstall overtop, it wouldn't do that either. I'll stick to ps CS and Elements........Don.

Do you need the Pentax program or can you use something else? I only occasionally use the Pentax software.

I couldn't get the HDR to work right - I took 2 different versions of a raw file and tried it, but it said there wasn't enough dynamic range difference. Think I need to read instructions on how to get it to work.

it's the only thing i have with me to work in raw. with HDR you have to use at least 3 different files for it to work, i believe. cs+ will not install on w98.

don, i never use it at home.. to uninstall, delete it, then run a registry cleaner. look for 'jv16' v3.. jv16 will also act as an uninstaller..

Not dumb at all. HDR = High Dynamic Range. Here's a link with a good explanation...
