EPI Builder Camera License:

Issue

In earlier releases of continuum Pre Windows 7, The Badge software would attach to the cameras and import a photo directly to the Badge without any additional cost.

Canon's SDK for the Powershot cameras is not compatible with Windows 7
Canon's SDK for the EOS line of cameras is compatible with Windows 7 but requires  a license in order to import photos directly into the badge.
