Help accessing the scripts folder on card?

Hi, I've got a USB connection from Win7_64 with libusb and I can run ptpCamgui and get remote control of the camera. But now I've lost the Canon USB driver, how do I browse my card file folders, specifically Scripts, so I can copy and try out new scripts? Does ptpV2 require a secondary script to browse the card folders in order to transfer files from PC? I'm trying to get remote file transfer working using the libusb driver to avoid pulling the card in and out to try out scripts, modify parts then run again. Thanks

PTPCamGui  should allow you to upload scripts, see http://chdk.wikia.com/wiki/PtpCamGui

chdkptp https://app.assembla.com/spaces/chdkptp/wiki also includes a GUI file browser and various file transfer commands. It uses the same libusb driver as PTPCamGui, so with the driver installed you should be able to use either (but not connected to the camera at the same time)

FWIW, you can't browse non-image files use the default windows PTP software anyway.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Many Many thanks! I went all through the Wikis and didn't get to the application. I see it's written for WIN_32 but works on my Win7_64. I  installed the LibUSB driver which needed full admin permission, then went around the houses on this wiki link, not being able to do the simple task of connect the camera and access the card files. Now I've got to chdkptp for Windows I'm good and don't need to understand German for the wrong software file links I went to from here:
