I bought a Kodak C713 camera today and when I took the pictures and plugged the camera into my computer, I loaded up the Easy Share software and it gave me this message:

To work with the Easy Share software, the catalog file needs to be upgraded. This upgrade may take several minutes to complete. Do you want to upgrade the catalog file now?

I hit upgrade, and it gives me this message:

Easy Share is unable to run. Please run Setup and choose repair to fix the application. (0, 5006, 0)

I hit repair, and it takes me to the repair screen and repairs it. Afterwards, telling me to restart my computer. When I do and I try to start the Easy Share software, it still doesn't work. I've uninstalled and reinstalled, gone to the Kodak website, unplugged and replugged the USB cord in all the USB ports I have available, I've used a different disk and another cord that fits the camera, but nothing is working.

Please help.

Thank you. (:

(Sorry if this is in the wrong part of the forum.)

I got this on the Easyshare support site at www.kodak.com:

Question : While starting EASYSHARE Software, I received a "EasyShare is unable to run. Please run Setup and choose repair to fix the application" error message. What does this mean and how do I fix it?
Answer : This message indicates that you must rebuild your picture catalog. Your pictures will not be deleted during the procedure, but any information that you added to the pictures, such as captions, will be deleted.

IMPORTANT: Print this page before continuing.

To rebuild the picture catalog, do Parts A and B below:

Part A

Select C: > Program Files > Kodak > KODAK EASYSHARE Software > bin.
Right-click the Catalog folder, and select Rename.

NOTE: If you cannot rename the folder, go to part B.

Select Start > Run.
In the Run dialog box, type %temp%, and click OK.
Double-click the Retain folder.
Double-click the bin folder.
Right-click the Catalog folder, and select Rename.
Change the folder name to OldCatalog2, and close the window.
Delete the backup catalog files ESBK.mb and ESBK.mbb:.

Hi,
I have two files that are ESKB files. One is mb and the other is mbb. I see they are Easyshare files. I don't have problems with them, just a question about them. Is that where all of my "albums" from Easyshare are stored? when I look at properties it says that it was modified on July 6, 2009. Perhaps when I downloaded pictures last? Just curious.

Thanks!
