Question about Microsoft LifeCam VX-1000 Webcam

1 Answer

Microsoft Lifecam VX-5000 software won't install

Tried installing software with camera disconnected per instructions.
Installation seemed to be in a loop. Kept saying downloading and installing files for over twenty minutes. In the middle of that, it tried to extract a file and encounted and unknown error and couldn't continue with the installation. Never did ask for the camera to be plugged in and never left an error message except unknown error.

    appreciate the help. Add/Remove shows no installations for today so there wasn't anything to unistall. Still at a dead end. Is Vista compatable and Vista did find a driver for it. It's useable, but without the bells and whistles. Thanks

Check the microsoft website to see what additional software you need for your model/OS
I run a Logitech and need DirectX 9 in addition to the Logitech software

Fill in the details of your cam/OS and check out the "Readme" links
