    I have recently been lucky to get hold of a new GF1.
    The camera comes with CD software that is unfortunately for windows vista/xp - not windows 7. I can only assume the product has been in the shop for some time.
    I am a little perturbed in how to access updated software for windows 7 - in paricular Silkypix studio developer.
    Has anyone got any ideas?

    Have you tried it?

    The software that Panasonic provides is not "freeware", so they don't make it available as a free download.

    While the CD may not yet say Win 7, I've run it under Win 7 (32 bit) without any problem. Have you tried it, or are you apprehensive because the CD doesn't list Win 7? If you tried it, what problem are you having?

    32 bit

    No, not with 64 bit. There is no dedicated 64 bit version available as far as I know.

    I had the same problem loading up the photofun studio 4 which came with my GF1 uon to a laptop with windows 7, I was able to upload the raw program slikpix without any problem. I did however mamage to load up the previous version of the photo funstudio that I got with my lumix FT-1. I looked on the panasonic web site to see if there was a downloadable version but could not find one.
