chdkptp with the SX40HS-100i

I can run chdkptp.exe (r11) on Windows 7/64-bit with my A590IS-101b without problems.
But when I run chdkptp.exe with the SX40HS-100i (in play mode) and hit "Connect" I get "error: no devices available".

However, the camera does shows in Explorer as:

Portable Devices(1)
"Canon PowerShot SX40 HS"
Digital Camera

and I can access files and folders from Explorer without problems.

I'm using philmoz-reorg@2433 on both cameras.
 
Do I need anything else to make chdkptp.exe connect to the SX40HS?

If you see it in explorer, then the libusb driver probably isn't correctly installed. On win7 (vista and later I think) you should use the INF driver rather than the filter driver.

In some cases (I'm not exactly clear on the details) the libusb driver only associates with the device on a particular port, so if you plug it into a different one than where the camera was when you crated the INF, it will show up in windows rather than libusb.

edit:
to be clear, you need to install and INF driver for each camera you use.
Don't forget what the H stands for.
