    me,too.I have seen someone did like this--

    SOLUTION - as I thought it is the Smartlogon utility that is hijacking the camera. As cool as this utility is I have uninstalled it and now everything works fine.
    Perhaps we could find a solution to this conflict.

The most common "other program" that interferes with camera download process is your antivirus program. Right-click the AV icon on bottom right and select EXIT, then wait 30 seconds or so, and try running the camera application again. Let me know if that was it.

As far as the second question, you can change boot.ini by r-clicking "My Computer" and selecting "properties'. Then select the startup and recovery tab, and you will find a boot.ini editor. Also, here is an MS article that explains how to directly modify boot.ini with notepad/wordpad:

I have LifeFrame application for the use of the webcam in ASUS Notebook, but when I try to use it in another application it says the camera is inactive/been used. When I close LifeFrame, the camera turns...


The camera should be available to be used without LifeFrame. See if there any options in Options (or Preferences) at the LifeFrame software, where you can choose if the camera should be used with it. If you can't figure it out, contact LifeFrame tech support, they should be able to help you with the setup. Or if you don't find a solution, uninstall the software and just use windows to administer the camera.

Asus lifeframe missing pictures


Hi emoly
try doing a search for a file type, in windows 7 type in the search box "type:jpeg" without the quotes. jpeg is a common type of picture, if you know that your camera saves as a different file type then use that. Hope this helps.

My Asus K501 webcam will not open. In Lifeframe, it says it is being used by another application.


Try taking a look at this forum page as a few people have had some success here: http://vip.asus.com/forum/view.aspx?id=20080623193235718&board_id=24&model=AF-200&SLanguage=en-us&page=1
It would seem that facial recognition utilities for logging in that use the webcam or screensavers that use the webcam can take exclusive control of it.

I am a first time user of ASUS virtual camera. Can you provide me with instructions on how to turn it on and off?


Hi kathy_handra,

You can turn on and off the ASUS virtual camera by pressing the FN+V. The Virtual camera uses software called ASUS lifeframe. You can locate and launch it by looking under the ASUS utility group of Icons for Lifeframe. When you open the application it is usually set to video mode. So, to switch it to camera click on the camera icon which is located at the lower left circular menu. To locate the photos, you will find them in your document folder [Documents\ASUS\LifeFrame\Image].

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Cannot start Asus Lifeframe


Many people are reporting this same problem. If you have downloaded and installed Lifeframe 2, and updated the Bison camera drivers, and it still freezes, you're not alone.

Some people have just uninstalled Lifeframe and use the Windows Camera and Scanner program instead. It's worth a try.

And get some antivirus software!! Use Kaspersky if you don't want to buy McAfee or Norton. It's too dangerous out there to not have anything.
