Error message: Another application may be using the camera

I recently bought the upgrade cd for my Intel webcam (CS340) so it would work on Windows XP. I was able to use it with Win 98 I get the following error message Live video is currently unavailable. Anoither application may be using the camera, your Intel USB camera may not be plugged in or your software may not be properly installed Here is a capture of the error message. I use the webcam in Photoshop through 'file > acquire > intel webcam' I think (but Im not positive) that I got this error message when I had Win98 but I cant think what the problem was Can anyone help? Thank you Mark

What may be happening is photoshop is still aquiring the cam in the programme although you may of finished using the software and the camera automatically associates itself with adobe. press Ctrl, Alt & Delete to get into task manager and in the applications tab look for your photoshop programme, if it is there, click end process. If not there look in processes and do the same, this should release your camera for use with other applications. If all fails you will have to uninstall the camera software and reinstall to associate it with the cam.

Webcam failed when upgraded to Win 10

What OS were you using when you upgraded? If you were using Windows 7, you could try to download and install the Windows 8 driver for the camera. These will often work under Windows 10.

Intel Home PC Camera CS331 Webcam work with XP?

It will if you have the software upgrade cd-rom published years ago by intel when xp first appeared. Intel no longer supports any cameras considered "toys". The old cd-rom that came with the camera may work if you use compatiblity mode and select windows 98. The software does not work too well on the old cd so its best to use the upgrade. In order to find the upgrade cd it will be necessary to either go to ebay or a friend or put and ad in the paper.

CS110 to use on XP

To the best of my knowledge, Intel has not released an upgraded driver for create and share for windows XP sp2, and will not be doing so in the future, without an upgraded driver it won't work.


Hope this helps.

Problem when i installed in windows vista

There is still plenty of hardware issues with Vista, so go to the cam or Windows web site for related issues and see if there is a patch. Make sure the cam is also set up correctly and use windows live if your'e still using MSN. You can also try installing Windows XP drivers as they are sometimes accepted and work.
