    To download the latest update for your program, you should visit the Toshiba’s "Latest Updates for All Models" website. Now you need to select the operating system that you are using on your Toshiba laptop. This is really important to select the right operating system, as different updates are designed for different operating systems.

    For example, if you are using Windows 7 and you select Windows XP by mistake, then the update may not work well with your Camera Assistant software.

    Usually, windows will not proceed with the installation of the wrong update. Even if it does, the program may not work  after you are done with the installation. Therefore, you should be very careful when selecting the operating system.
