Problems with tethered mode and Canon 5d mkII

I believe I have followed the instructions correctly.

My Windows Vista recognizes my camera. When I run FastPictureViewer Professional, I press Ctrl "T" and I can see the program waiting for an image from my 5D MKII. However, When I take the picture it is not transferred to my computer.

I should explain that I can run my E-3 tethered using EOS utility from Canon.

Does anyone have any suggestions for things I can try?

Sorry for the typo, should have read "I can run the 5D MKII tethered using EOS utility from Canon"

Canon cameras requires Canon software (EOS Utility) to operate tethered, please see this other forum post (basically, use the EOS Utility to transfer the files and watch the incoming folder with the "T" mode, not Ctrl+T)

Thanks Axel. Works like a charm, I was trying to use FPVP tethering the same way I used it on my Nikon D700.
