It looks like the problem is with the unofficial zip you downloaded. The sx400 is not officially supported yet.

He has the stickx instructions for dealing with builds that have not been officially released.  Is there something more?

Yes.  He posted a CHDK build that you can try (assuming your camera has the same firmware version).  Why do you ask?

Short answer - it's very possible.

Longer answer - Magic Lantern is completely different.  You are wrestling with making Windows let STICK work on your PC.  Dave is watching this thread and gave you some good advice.  Did you follow it?  And did you follow the instructions for loading an unreleased build?

Yes, I believe so, but can you install an unofficial version by altering the name of the zip, I have tried that and still get the error message, did you see it in the txt ?

Yes.  And the advice from zeno (aka dave) the author of the utility is to make sure you are running the right script for Windows.

Let's face it.  Hundreds of people have made this work - including me.  So we just have to keep poking at this to figure out what you have been doing wrong.  That's not an insult .. just fact as this stuff is sometimes hard.

Agreed, I know its not an insult and it is so annoying that hundreds have made it work and I can't, I seem to get so far but then when I go to install CHDK it fails, i dont want to walk away from this, but thank you for your help and everyone else on this subject.
