Question about Computers & Internet
I installed this Dynex Webcam in Messenger 9.0 running on Vista. I bought the computer last Christmas. I can see myself on the cam but my friends cannot. What do I need to do or install in order for this to work?
This may work, if you don't mind going backwards a little bit. Lots of folks have had problems with version 9, from not working at all, to webcam problems, video problems, audio problems on and on. Google: Windows Live Messenger (Version 8.5). This is the best version they put out and versions after that lack some of the features found in 8.5.. I am not talking about "regular" Windows Messenger here, but rather Windows LIVE Messenger 8.5. Completely remove your old version and download and install the above version. It also has, in one of the tabs, a place where you can choose which camera you are using. I am currently running two differerent cameras, but I only use the one for Live Messenger. The other one uses a free program I found on the web which allows me to monitor my home when I am away. Getting back to your problem......make sure that you ONLY are downloading Windows Live Messenger v8.5 and no other. Some sites will automatically jump you to the latest version, and you don't want that. Try www.majorgeeks.com I think that's where I got mine but even that may direct you to Microsofts web site. You still have the option as to which version you can download. If this cures your problem, please rate this solution as helpful. Thanks and good luck.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
