    I don't see a lot of discussion on Olympus Capture here, but hopefully there is some experience.

    USB tethering was a key feature driving me to upgrade to the MkII, so I tried it out first with my Dell Venue 8 Pro tablet. This actually worked reasonably well for control, although managing the different windows for viewing the captured images was a bit clumsy on the small screen (1280x800). Things worked as expected though - the image was downloaded to the target folder, and the preview window displayed the result.

    So, next I tried it on an Acer netbook (a decent netbook with 4GB and a Celeron processor rather than an Atom). With a 2nd monitor in play things worked really well EXCEPT that the preview window never actually showed the captured images - it just displayed the 'waiting' message. The images were successfully downloaded to the target folder on the netbook and I could open them in other programs, but Oly Capture itself never showed them.

    The Venue 8 is running Win 8.1 and the Netbook is running Win 7 Home Premium which might account for some differences in behavior, but I would have assumed it had been tested on the main platforms.

    Anyone have similar experiences? Any suggestions?

    Not displaying sounds like a video driver issue or the Oly software may be buggy.
