Installation Instructions

For EDT PCD series device driver software
Windows 7, 8 & 10 (32 & 64-bit) version .EXE File
Last updated June 29, 2017

If you currently have a PCD package installed, remove it first by running the Windows add/remove (aka programs and features) utility.

This version of the PCD driver for Windows has a self-extracting install program. To install the software, download EDTpcd_version.exe to a temporary location on your computer, then execute it. You can optionally choose to install it directly from the web.

The installation puts the PCD Utilities icon on your desktop. Double-clicking the icon launches a Windows command terminal in the installation directory (usually C:\EDT\pcd), providing access to all of the EDT files including utilities, examples, executables, and libraries. Several README files are also present; for quick start and camera configuration information, see README.pcd. See the users guide for more detailed information on using your EDT device.

IMPORTANT: If you have any user or 3rd-party applications developed using a pre-5.x version of the EDT libraries, they MUST be recompiled and re-linked with the libraries / header files in this package in order for them to work with this version of the driver.
