    Windows 8.1.1 Pro with Media Center

    I failed to get Picassa to even work.
    I think 8.1 is the problem.

    Windows 8.1 64 bit

    I still haven't found a simple solution for automatically importing photos from a camera to a selected folder for my father who's 89. Surprisingly, this does not seem to be possible with any common utility unless someone knows of a registry fix or similar cure.

    My requirements are:

    1. Connect camera via WiFi (this works fine)
    2. Import wizard starts automatically, displays the photos on the camera and invites you to select which photos to copy and which folder to copy the photos and movies to
    3. An image viewing program opens to view the imported photos.

    This seemingly common and simple process seems incredibly difficult to implement in Windows 8!

    All attempts to date have failed as discussed in the above thread. Does someone feel like writing a very useful app for the Windows store?
