Can't install the damn thing, even after I've downgraded to original CD version.

Did you have trouble installing DCU 4.11 or the RAW Codec? I installed DCU 4.11 (Win XP SP3) no problems, overwriting the original install. Did you run the install from an account with administrative privileges?

DCU 4.11, I woulnd't install RAW codec before that, I am always admin at home. upgrading 3.51 and 3.61 was without problem. Install program says can't find old version. Of course I didn't change any original directory name either.

I believe it will only update from ver. 4.0. I don't think it will update from ver. 3.xx.

You think so? Is there a way I can upgrade to 4.0xx without CD?

I have no idea. I would suggest maybe contacting Pentax directly. Maybe they will offer it as and upgrade.

the 4.11 update introduced a bug: white balance using 3 o 5 reference points doesn't work anymore, as only the last point is used. In other words, one can use 1 reference point only. This feature used to work in 4.10 (the version shipping with the K-x).
