Software install question

The software cd that came with my new camera contains two items already running on my PC.

My question is would it be wise to install the complete CD or would it be better to do custom install and bypass those two items?

The two items are Quicktime which came factory installed and PhotoRecord 2.2 which installed with printer software.

Re: software install

Fish,

Personally I would skip those two items. You know what you have, and you don't know what you get. And the install might undo some settings you already made or changed. You never know with installs.

If there's a later version on the CD, you can consider to upgrade, of course.

That's what I felt would be the way to go but being fairly new with software installs I was not sure if it mattered if the programs were not installed together.Thank's for your reply.

Fish, You May Find The Quicktime Is Necessary

Frequently software programs install an "older/smaller" version of "Quicktime for Windows" that is required for the various animations on their programs. The newest Quicktime program such as the 6.5 version may not work with their software...If you don't install it, you'll find out soon enough whether it works or not.

I am familiar with a number of camera, enclyclopedia, and tutorial software that require BOTH versions to be installed.

Hope this helps.
