645Z Tethered Shooting w/USB on Windows 7 using Lightroom 5.7?

I am usually a Canon shooter and shoot tethered in my studio but I am just starting with a brand new 645Z.

Has anyone successfully tethered their 645Z to a Windows 7 system? What software? What length cable?

I was able to connect and look at some images on the SD card but then got an error code and cannot find error codes in the manual.

AFAIK you need to use this software to tether:

Hi Dwight,

I haven't tried it on Windows yet, but if the sample they sent me has a Windows version, I'll fire-up the Windows partition on my Mac and try it.

Using IT2 into LR5 on my MAC is rock solid so far. One chap on here had a real problem with it, but others on the same thread had it working just fine. I use a 15' USB 3 cable - a $20 one I bought at my local discount computer shop. I'd be tempted on a cable-clamp/ securing device of some sort if I were moving around a lot, but so far no troubles. It seems to reconnect straight-up if either end unplugged. No rebooting.

Thanks! I guess my next step is to get the IT2 software!
