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:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923100/en-us
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
issues).
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.

Hi there,
You can still download the drivers from the links below for your windows

very incomplete data provided..!!..n itz unclear to me of wat os u r using..assuming that u r using win xp pro sp2..n directx installed..

howevr, download microsoft kb888111update n install it..u need to re-install or update the device driver (may b manually)..logon to internet n seek the package/audio driver..along wid the company, there will b a list of such site n driver download links if u search by the model name on a search engine (like google)..

http://www.bioticaindia.com/lifecam-vx3000.html
OR
http://www.howtodrivers.com/model565205.html
OR
http://driver.wareseeker.com/download/microsoft-lifecam-vx-3000-5.12.1.40.rar/1ea6b037fd

download them onto a location; if the driver is in a zip format, unzip it,ifitz in.exe form, just run it; if done manually it'll ask for the correct driver and location; relocate the path and a.inf file (wat it'll ask for)....goto the device manager n verify, if installed properly..!!
also download n install "k-lite mega codec pack"....

but always better to consult ur system admin/vendor....

Microsoft LifeCam 2.07 Set Up Taking HOURS!


In my case the LifeCam 2.07 installation problems on Win XP SP3 were related to Microsoft .NET Framework. Figured this out by looking into the temporary directories LifeCam installation creates - it seemed like it was repeatedly extracting and trying to install .NET 3.0 without success. Fixed this by installing .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and all following updates from Windows Update first. Then the LifeCam installation worked fine.

Software won't work with vista


Uninstall Windows Vista. Do a fresh install of Windows XP Professional Sp2. Download XP drivers and install camera. Many software programs have trouble initializing in Windows Vista. Good luck!
