    Vista drivers do not exist or are not sufficient, Vista does not recognise the cam via USB.

Just read the most wonder article on how toe fix your quickcam zoom for vista follow these steps

These is from 2007 post so you will have to google for the drivers mentioned. I did and it worked

I have a Logitech Quickcam Zoom and this is how I got it to work:
1. Install QuickCam 32-bit Version: 10.5.0 Build 1096b
It can be found here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/downloads/software/CA/EN,CRID=1794,contentid=10234
2. When you get to the camera detection part where it asks you to plug in your camera, plug it into a new usb port (if you had it plugged in when you installed Vista) and just press skip.
3. Windows may try and find the driver for it, you can cancel that too.
4. Install the old QuickCam software (Version: 8.4.8 build 1034A)and overwrite anything it asks you to (it will fail to install completely because of the new version, but it will put the files you need into the Logitech program files directory.
The old software is here: http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/downloads/software/CA/EN,CRID=1794,contentid=7649
5. Go to the windows orb (former start button), open control panel, go to system, then on the top left of the window click device manager.
6. Find the unknown usb device (hopefully you only have one... otherwise unplug anything else that doesn't work or you haven't updated the driver for yet)
7. Right click and select update driver, choose a location to find the driver, navigate your way to C:\Program Files\Logitech\QuickCamWebInstall\Drivers\WinNew\PRO2
8. Press OK or whatever, and let it install.
9. Enjoy!

Mine didn't even need to reboot and worked with the 10.5 QuickCapture software. Still need to test with Skype and Live Messenger though.

There is a work-around if you have Win7 Pro or Ultimate (or upgrade to one of those versions). Download and install Virtual PC and the XP mode software from Microsoft. Use the work-arounds if your hardware doesn't support virtualization. (You'll find the details at the Microsoft site. My computer that currently runs XP mode handles virtualization if enabled in the BIOS so I'm not completely informed on the steps.)

Then launch the XP mode software and install the camera to that "OS" as well as the QuickCam 8.4.8 software from Logitech. This may not be practical if you want to do video-conferencing with the QuickCam Messenger. It will depend a bit on how much memory you dedicate to XP mode since XP mode is 32-bit. (It will only see 3 GB.)

Since Logitech didn't include this model of the QuickCam Messenger in their updates to the QuickCam program for later OS versions, you are stuck this XP limit. You can also use a second computer, a dual-boot computer or another virtual computer program with XP installed. However, these require a licensed version of XP. Other virtualization programs include VMWare and Parallels.

I wish that I had better news for you. (It's a pain to have good hardware and no drivers. Unfortunately, I don't know any programmers who would be willing to write the drivers and software for the web camera from scratch.)

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

Try these, it works for me on Ultimate after a bit of compatibility tweaking (a lot of it on my account as I messed up the install and had to clean up the mess)

Try it out.
