Canon CRW Format Support (Win32 Support Only)

*** Canon Runtime files required for supporting the CRW format: CDSDK.reg

Canon, Inc. licenses these DLLs. To distribute these files, contact Canon to obtain a license of the Canon Digital Camera Software Developer Kit.

These files are included with LEADTOOLS for demonstration and testing purposes only. You must obtain a license from Canon prior to distributing these files.

Canon, Inc. states that the user of their CRW SDK MUST place the Canon required DLLs/libraries in the working folder of the EXE application that is using them, and not in the SYSTEM folder. While an application may function with Canon's binaries in the SYSTEM folder, this practice can lead to conflicts with other applications that require these binaries. Therefore, LEAD recommends users of CANON DLLs/Libraries to place the binaries in the application's working folder to avoid problems and conflicts with other third-party applications.
