Here's a link to a zip file containing the files from the installation CD. Unzip and burn on to a CD and it should install OK. Right-click and choose Save As...

I realize this is a very old thread but I thought it might be useful for someone to know how I solved the problem of not being able to upload an in camera (F-1) merged HDR file (consising of 3 merged files) into a photo editing program. At the time of this thread thought I did it once with DCU5 but later was not able to do so, every time getting a single file of the three, not a merged one.

What I finally found worked was the advice to convert the merged (DRG) file in camera to a TIFF file, as described in pages 77 and 85-6 of the F-1 operating manual. It was then very simple (and I need simple!) to send the TIFF file to a SD card and then upload the file to a photo editing program, in this case Affinity Photo, and do a full editing/processing of the file (that is, as full as I wanted it to be). Goal finally accomplished, to my great delight.

Thanks to all who tried to help me with this problem. The image I used came out quite well.

Thanks for the useful update. I think many of us forget the TIFF option.
