Install EOS software upgrades without CD (32 bit systems)

I recently posted a recipe for how to install EOS software upgrades without the CD on 64 bit systems. For completeness sake, I will also post the recipe for 32 bit systems. Please note that I haven’t tested this. I would therefore appreciate if you could use the comment feature and let me know whether this works or not.

Paste the following into notepad and save as canon.reg:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\EOS Utility]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\DPP]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX\Settings]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ZoomBrowser EX\Install]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\PhotoStitch
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\EOS Capture]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\EOSViewerUtility]
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Canon\ODSK]

Then right click the file and select Merge. You should now be able top install the upgrades on a clean system.
