Last Modified: 2013-12-21
I have a canon ixus digital camera which i have coonected to a HP Windows CE 5.0 thin client - I get prompted for a driver...could someone help me with this issue - I have found drivers for CE 6.0 but not 5.0 which it does not accept...

Any help greatly appreciated!


Watch Question


CE 5.0 didn't expose a camera driver model, this means that camera driver developers would need to expose their own specific interfaces, perhaps using IOCTLs to expose functionality - this means that applications would need to know the specifics of the underlying camera driver model to interface with the camera.
