Image Transmitter 2

I have the Image Transmitter 2.4.2 for my Pentax 645Z loaded and it works fine. Now the Pentax Website has Image Transmitter 2.5 listed as an update for the 645z.
when trying to install it I get the following message:

Cannot to find old version that is valid target of upgrading. installation is cancelled.

I have Adobe PS CS6 loaded, and Lightroom 5.5. The current version 2.4.2 I have works in both softwares.

I had the version 2 loaded for the 645D, I also loaded version 2.4.2, and version 2, but I am getting the same message all the time.
The phone number for Korea Pentax on their internet website are all invalid. Pentax office in Chongmuro cannot provide any explanation for the update 2.5.
Could some one provide me with a link to this 2.5 update, or explain why this dowload does not work, and why all the phone number for Korea Pentax are invalid?
Thank you for your help.
Regrards,

Werner Hennies

What operating system are you using?

I get the same message on Mac, because I don't have any earlier version installed (it was not free, and doesn't seem to be available any more in any case). Is your 2.4.2 installed in the right place?

I just tried the update on a Mac and it installed just fine. You have to install it into the same directory as the old version, so if you have changed the installation path you have to tell the updater where to look. There is a button for this in the updater.
Hope that helps.

Paul,

thanks for your response.
I use Mac Mojave 10.14.6. on a Mac Pro 213. I have the version 2 CD and installed it, but I have no choice for the location. It goes straight to the Macintosh HD, 2.7 MB. I tried several locations where the 2.4.2 and version 2 are installed. The version 2 also works with the 645z.
Version update 2.5 can be loaded successfully. 2, and 2.4.2 But again only on the Macintosh HD. Ths update appears under downloads and applications but only as a .pkg files. I cannot find the .app files anywhere on my Mac. This update us dated 31. Oct. 2019.
There is no .app file for this one, all the version 2 and 2.4.2 have an .app file. The version 2 shows up as Pentax Image Transmitter .app.

Regards,
Werner

Pid,

I did install the .pkg file ans it did install successfully. But where is the corresponding .app file? All .app files I double click have either the versions 2.4.2 or 2 only.I cannot find the version 250 anywhere. Do you have a version 250.app somewhere?
Thanks.
Werner

There is no choice for location directory of folder, it is only Macintosh HDD. There is no 250 app to start the program. I have apps for 2.4.2 and 2. no other .app.

Hi Werner,
it will be installed in the Applications folder as IMAGE Transmitter 2.app. You should also find an alias on your desktop after installation.

I have installed the version 2 from the DVD. under applications I find the version 2, it loaded but does not read the 654Z. I assume this one is for the 645D, which I had before. All the installations I have as .app (installed also the alias copy) are versions 2.4.2. None has the _250 version indicated.
these show no changes in features.

thanks for your time and efforts.

Finally Image Transmitter 2 appears now as Version 2.5.0., and it works with 645z.

I just reloaded the whole set again, and found it.
Thanks to the forum.
