The 7D Mark II was first supported in Camera Raw 8.7 which is compatible with CS6 and Cloud versions. Not CS5.1 or CS5.5.
- Join the Cloud, or
- Upgrade to CS6, or
- Free option: download the free Adobe DNG converter, convert all 7D Mark II Raw files to DNG format then edit the DNG files in CS5.1.

Thank you John for your suggestion. I need a little more help:
- I’m not familiar with the DNG format – if I use Adobe CS 5, would it take me to the RAW editing from which I would then transfer the file to JPEG after I made the desired changes and will it have/preserve all the details that the RAW format provides?
I really appreciate your help,

If you work with the DNG file format, you will be able to perform all the RAW editing.
Also DNG files works almost like the RAW files.
