Question about Logitech Webcam

1 Answer

Logitech Web Cam in use by other app

I have Vista 32 Bit, I've installed the Logitech drivers just as instructed. Plugged inthe device and install appeared to run smoothly. Then, when I click to capture video, I get Webcam is in use by another application.
I looked in Device Manager and no other devices interfering. I disabled and reenabled the USB port. Tried multiple USB ports. I have no antivirus currently running and no other programs up aside from Logitech. 
Any idea what else could work?

Some drivers are packaged as 32 or 64-bit. To find out which architecture of Windows you're using, check out this page: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/827218. Note that the instructions for Vista are the same for 7.

Can't install CD for wireless keyboard. Need


Hello!

Usually when I install drivers for hardware I never use the CD that ships with the product. By the time the product has shipped, CD's that contain software for the product are usually outdated since hardware manufacturers are constantly updating software around the time of release and for awhile afterwords. Because of this, I like to go straight to the manufacturer website and download the absolute latest software/drivers for the hardware in question.

Here's a link below to both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the Windows Vista software for SetPoint. Depending on what version of Windows Vista you're running [32 or 64], choose the appropriate one and try installing that. If that doesn't work, visit Logitech's Support Website, choose your product, and download the appropriate drivers.

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/352&cl=us,en?WT.ac=sc|downloads||dd

Click there. Choose your OS.  Then choose 32 or 64 bit.
Download and install.

To find out what OS and 32 or 64 bit, right click My Computer, select Properties. The pop up from that has all this information. XP or Vista. 32 or 64. (If you have XP, it won't show 32. If you have 64, it will. So, if you don't see either, you have 32 bit.)

Let me know if you have any questions.

You might have a 64-bit Windows installed. The drivers on the CD are only for 32-bit windows. Download and install the latest drivers from Logitech website (http://www.wilife.com/Support/Downloads.aspx), which includes the 32-bit and 64-bit versions. Hope this helps !

Haveing trouble installing logitech quick cam onto my comuptor thats running windows vista


This problem was caused by a compatibility issue between Windows Vista and Logitech QuickCam Messenger.
Logitech QuickCam Messenger was created by Logitech, Inc..
Recommendation
—————-
To search for similar devices that are compatible with this version of Windows, visit the Windows Vista Hardware Compatibility List website online.
However, it’s not totally out of hope for owner of Logitech QuickCam Messenger who has upgraded to Windows Vista. The following hack will use Windows XP driver (a common trick to use non Vista compliant device) to install the webcam in Vista:
  1. Download QuickCam 8.4.8 with driver for WinXP.
  2. Install WinRAR if not already installed yet.
  3. Open the setup installer qc848enu.exe and unpack its contents to a folder. Alternatively, right click on qc848enu.exe and select “Extract to qc848enu\” option.
  4. Insert or plug in the Logitech QuickCam Messenger to a USB port if not already done so.
  5. An “Driver Software Installation” icon in systray (notification area) should appear, which will pop up detailed message if click. It should fail, and “Add Hardware Wizard” dialog window will appear. Choose to install the driver manually by instructing the Wizard to locate and look for the web cam driver inside the Drivers folder under the unpacked folder of the qc848enu.exe setup program. You can use browser button to select the folder.
  6. Windows Vista should grab the XP driver and install it properly.
  7. Download the latest version (10.5.1) of Vista compliant QuickCam software from Logitech to install the software on Vista.
  8. Run the setup (qc1051enu) normally. You may need to skip the detection of webcam near the end of installation process.
Voila, you can now use the Logitech webcam to capture images or use it in conjunction with video chat in IM programs such as Windows Live (MSN) Messenger, AIM Messenger, Yahoo! Messenger, Skype or run Logitech VideoCall.

i hope thist post can solve your problem


thank's
