Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-6000 (68C-00001) Webcam

2 Answers

LifeCam 2.4 won't install on my WinXP PC

The software (downloaded from msft site) just continuously shows the "downloading and installing" progress bar, but the bar will go to 100% and just start over again. It'll keep doing this endlessly.

I have the VX-3000.

    I have been having the exact same problem!! Is there anywhere else you can download it from?

    I have the same problem with my VX-6000 on XP home edition - it just runs the setup program forever, in the process locking up my computer.

    I am having the same problem. I have Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Servie Pack 3 system in my laptop.

    I purchased the camera only without CD, and tried to install the drive from Microsoft site, but it just keeps on and on. I can't even close it because the X mark is diabled. Dose anyone know a solution to it?

The solution was patience. I let the progress bar running for a while and before giving up, I was doing something else and when I came back to the window again, the installation was done. I don't know how, but it is working now. So, my advise is that just wait and wait until the installation is complete. Good luck~~!

Did you install the software that was for windows 7? You can click the start menu, then right click on computer. Then click manage, click device manager on the left side. Right click on your webcam then click update driver software. Click browse my computer for driver software. Then click browse and find where you have the downloaded driver at. After you have done that click next it should then install your driver for the webcam. If you need more help leave a comment and ill try again.

Go to the link below and download the latest software for the camera.

Uninstall what you have now. Restart the computer. Install the software that you downloaded. DO NOT connect the camera until the installation tells you to do so. Following the installation, adjust the mic and speakers. I have found that it is better to use a headset w/mic rather than a mic and speakers.

Good luck, and please let me know how this works out for you.

Problem installing lifecam 2.04

just had the same problem read in another forum that you have to uninstall the net framework 2.0. (see below) which I found to complicated ...I just plugged the camera in - and at least with Skype it works ....

I found this link helpful:
Try and use method one to uninstall your .net framework software. Method one
did not work for me, I kept getting issues with removing both 2.0 and 3.0.
I then used method 2 which entails following another link and downloading a
.net framework cleanup tool. I ran the program to cleanup ALL .Net versions.
Then I went back to Microsoft Downloads and downloaded .net framework 1.1,
2.0 and 3.5 (not 3.0 - for some reason 3.0 would not download and created
Once these .Net Framework downloads were installed I downloaded and
installed LifeCam 2.04 software and my kid was up and running in 10 minutes.
It took me over a week to get this issue resolved.
One more thing, when you are downloading and installing your .net framework
files you need to make sure you download in the proper sequence. Also, for
some reason I encountered printer issues the first time through this. The
second time I just unplugged my printer untill all downloads were installed
and I did a computer restart and the printer issue went away.
