I am using 188.8.131.52 but it looks like 3.11.31 is the latest.

The DPP, I have just installed from the disk is 184.108.40.206, so presumably I should update it.

Me too. Exactly the same. Can't see anywhere on it a link to upgrade like you get with ACR though.

I looked for that, but it isn't there. You have to go fishing around on the Canon site. Anyone wanting to install DPP without the original disc has to fish more deeply, as Canon don't make the full program freely available.
Been having a good look round Canon site but can't find anything to do with DPP at all except for some upgrade for MACs.
Thanks from me too Colin. I've updated to 3.11.31.
What I shall do is run a few Canon RAWs through both DPP and ACR as a comparison.
I seem to recall someone suggesting once that DPP clips colours less in the raw conversion than third-party convertors - particularly left of the blue channel (i.e. yellows), which would make sense as yellow is strongly represented within ProPhoto RGB, and by association the original raw file. Maybe not of much significance unless you're a garden photographer, when yellows frequently crash and burn!
the way I find upgrades for DPP, is to simply find the latest Canon camera, I believe currently it's the 1DX and simply download DPP from there.

That's a good idea. Never thought of that!
Thanks Frank. Worked a treat. I can't really see any differences between this updated version and the 18.104.22.168 on the disc but I'll give it a go. I'll have to look at the tutorials but at first glance I'm still not convinced it's better than ACR. But the, it's what you're used to.
I have a similar problem with my Canon 350D and with no help from Adobe I have abandoned all attempts and caried on with JPeg. It is very disappointing
If I had a 350D I would definitely be using Canon's DPP, there's no better or more user friendly. If you don't have it, ask on here and someone might help you get it.
I recently tried DPP again after a few years and I am absolutely impressed by it. I opened an image of two dragonflies and in LR the lower one seems out of focus yet in DPP it is as sharp as the upper one - maybe it is the lens correction or something but I am now wondering about a heap of other images...
