    I recently downloaded the new MSN messenger, and all of a sudden my webcam wont work. It works perfectly in Skype. Every time I send my webcam I get, " We couldn't start your camera device. Please check that your camera is not currently in use by another program, and then try again. " 


    When someone tries to send it, I get, "   Messenger is not available right now. Please try again later. (0x8ac70202) " . 


    When I go to tools, and click the Audio and Video Setup, I get " We were unable to run Audio and Video Setup ".    How can I fix it?

Momo_aaliyah,

It is known that if you clock setting and your date setting wasn't correct, MSN Messenger won't let you sign in. Please check your date and time.

Rate my solution if you like it, appreciated!!!

Webcam problem on windows live messenger 2009


there could be the problem with registry keys conflicting with each other,
Tools > Audio and video setup...

Follow the instructions on the setup screen and once its finished, you will find that the webcam should be able to show up.
If it doesn't show the webcam on the other person, tell him to switch his status to busy for 5 seconds and then back, hopefully that should come up on the other persons screen.

If this hasn't work in most cases it should work - You will have to downgrade to Windows Live Messenger 8.5 and hopefully it should work.

If this hasn't work, go to the HP website and search up webcam drivers for your device and then install it on your computer - Hopefully your webcam would work.
if it does not work then you have to download reginout registry cleaner to fix this problem

This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:

1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.

2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.

Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.

You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:

Windows Live Messenger 8.1:
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en

Lifecam VX-3000 will not connect wth MSN Messenger?


It's not a driver problem based on the fact it works with other applications. Since it won't work with Messenger my strong suspicion is that's your culprit (Messenger)....even though it worked before.

Uninstall and try it again. When you uninstall make sure you delete any folders found in "Widows Explorer" that are under program files (not in Windows itself....or at least not at this point). Make sure you are using the latest version by the way since you are going to install it again anyway.

As to why it did not work you might want to check the Microsoft knowledge base...(there can be some sort of a conflict particularly if you updated software, downloaded patches, installed a new application, whatever).

If this doesn't work...run your antivirus and Spybot search and destroy on the entire drive. If you are not running an antivirus AVAST or AVG are both excellent (and free as is Spybot.)

Let me know if this does not work....odds are it will. Tango
