Eos utility for late 2012 iMacs?

Hi everybody, Ive got myself an iMac with no superdrive and would like to install Eos Utility. Ive been to the canon website and they only have the updater which requires the original disc for installation. Has anyone found any workarounds for a fresh install?

thanks

Purchase a SuperDrive to load software, rip CDs into iTunes, etc. Then load the Canon software.

Don't know if you have access to a Macbook/Pro. If so can't you use that DVD drive over the network?

EDIT: Or just try this.

thanks a bunch, i tried the instructions on that site before but it didnt work as i was trying to use the most recent version of the Eos Utility. Just tried a slightly older version and it worked like a dream, thanks for you help and suggestions!
