MediaImpression 3.5 Problems

I recently bought an X-5, which comes with MediaImpression 3.5 from ArcSoft. Though the documentations say it will work with Windows XP SP3, I have tried it on two PCs (one with XP Pro, the other with XP Home Edition) without success. It seems to install OK, but when first executed it puts up a message that an update is available. Whether I click "update now" or "cancel" both PCs went into an un-interruptable state using 100% of the CPU. The only way to regain control was to force a power down and reboot. Does anyone else have a similar experience? Or suggestions what I might be doing wrong? Not that I feel that I need to use MediaImpression - I can easily get images into my PCs with the USB cable, or by removing the SD card and using a card reader... but I would like to know if I'm doing something stupid!

They do have a free download here Download ArcSoft MediaImpression it is a safe download I put it on my computer to try it out. Maybe this is the updated version you need. Mine also had to do an update the first time I tried to use it and updated without incident on my windows 8 machine. Good luck to you hope this works, and join the X-5 owners club in the groups I hope to get some more people in their and build an x-5 community!
