The drivers are now updated and you will be able to download and stream video.  However, some users may experience a small issue as described below:

If you have items on your camera and download them using the software and then go into the Live Streaming mode, the software will not recognize the camera.  You will need to download the items off the camera, disconnect the camera, exit the software, reconnect the camera, and then reopen the software to use the Live Streaming mode.

As long as you use the same USB port on your computer you should not have to go through this process again.
