I tried several times, clearly the updater was connected as it told me what the existing firmwares, camera and 12-14 Pro, were. Updated lens ok but when trying to write OS to camera failed.

I had launched updater from Olympus Master - mistake. I believe that the latter still had a connection to the camera as was locking it. Shut down OM processes and bingo!

Now trying to work out how to use these nice new facilities and restoring Mysets
Olympus Master is so out of date, you should be using the latest version of Olympus Viewer 3 & in those updates (for that software) it will also offer you Oly Digital Camera Updater version 1.2.1. You only need to run the Updater by itself when updating your camera or you can also do it from OV3. If you have that then I can't help any further.
I fiddle with violins (when I'm not fiddling with a camera).
