Just received my lovely silver G9x and it's a thrill to behold.
I have configured it to wirelessly send photos to both my phone and to Google Drive. That works like a purring charm.
But I have really struggled with getting it to connect to my home computer.
I have done the following:
Download Digital Camera Software 6.0 [Windows] from Canon's webste
Unzipped the files and the installation failed twice (for some reason not all files were created).
After uninstalling and restarting the machine, I was able to install, and, as per the G9x manual instructions on how to install this (pp. 138-139), I can see the wi-fi connection setup .exe. When I double-click this, the following error is presented:
canon utilities wireless camera connection setting has stopped working
I have googled this error to death and found nothing.
My laptop is running Windows 8.1.
This seems like an issue with that download, the Digital Camera Software 6.0, as I just tried on my work computer and had an issue (admittedly, a different issue, how annoying). Please help!
Edit: according to the Canon site, my laptop does not need any driver updates
