You may have to allow the paltalk in the list of allowed programmes in your firewall, router and antivirus programme.

Picture back to cam

Launch the Logitech toolbar onto your desktop
On the pictorial menu open 'Privacy Shades' ( the window blind picture )
If you can see the picture with a square red box next to it - click on the red square to replace it with a green triangle
The privacy shade is now off.

Quickcam communicate stx

well, i finally found the website for logitech and found an article on there from a tech guy, (i guess that is what he does) the article was titled, "How to make your logitech camera work in an im." when i read that i followed the instructions and know it is not my cam, but the messenger i was using. i don't know what to do about that because it is yahoo and there support is NILL!!!!!!, i repeat NILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it takes some finding (the article) but it says to try your cam for 5 minutes making a video from quick capture. if it works ok then it is the website and not the cam. may i say yahoo stinks! also he said that it is 99% of the time the website is the problem. not a quote. hope this helps someone out there that is having the same trouble.

Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks

Bob P,
I have Logitech Quick Cam STX not exactly what you have but I think close. I got it to work with Messenger. I have made it through the installation. Not sure what I did to make it work.
I would assume it can be done. If you think it would help to compare our settings some how or for me to help in some other way please let me know. I will be online lots during the day next week as I am not working next week.

Good luck.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?

when you were installing the software did a taskbar pop up appear and tell you that hardware was found, and then proceeded to install the cam and inform you that the Logitech STX is now installed and ready for use? If not then the cam may need to be tried in another usb port as of yet it has not been recognised by windows. Also if this is being used on a laptop, sometimes there is not enough power amps being sent be the usb port to recognise, again trying a different port may solve that. If all else fails re install the software again, but make sure windows is allowing the cam to work, as sometimes there is an updater programme that works in conjunction with the cam to update drivers etc, this will probably be being dissalowed by either windows or your internet security programme and any part of the software that is being blocked may be stopping your cam also.

Logitech QuickCam STX vista compatibility?

Have you updated DirectX?, I'm not sure if Vista has DX9.0 or 9.0c, but you could try and update DirectX before you install the cam software. Also if the cam is usb, did you install the software "before" connecting the cam?, some people aren't aware that usb devices have to have the software installed first, before connecting the device.
