DSLRFocus Anyone?
      #6152354 - 10/22/13 07:50 PM

Several years back my primary imaging software for my Canon XT was DSLRFocus. To my knowledge, it is no longer available to be purchased and has been replaced by numerous excellent, multifunctional programs. However, I still have it on an old, old laptop and it works my camera fine. I wonder how many early DSLR imagers remember or still use it?? If I can find my "Key", I would like to put it on my newer laptop and give it a go one night.

Same here. I used to run my EOS 300D with DSLRFocus.

Does anyone have contact information on Chris Venter, the originator of DSLRFocus? Although I have a Registered version 3 on my old laptop, I would like to see if he could provide another Key so that I can add the program to my newer imaging computer.. I'm willing to $$ for another Key if necessary.... Oh well, it would be the try.

I was able to move mine to another XP machine by simply copying the complete folder that the executable file resides in.

No luck again, I tried copying the entire folder to a thumb drive. The Key did not copy over... #%$#!!. So, I guess I'll just upgrade to something like APT or Backyardeos. Thank you all for your comments.
