SOURCE: Can't install camera from Logitech Quickcam Pro 5000 on my Gateway laptop

If you mean that it will not install at all, and mean that windows won't recognise your cam; it maybe that you have not updated windows installer 3.1 after you have done a clean install. Click on link to download, apologies if this is'nt what you mean. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=889482fc-5f56-4a38-b838-de776fd4138c&displaylang=en

If you are using windows xp then you should download this fix from the microsoft website. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=C717D943-7E4B-4622-86EB-95A22B832CAA&displaylang=en

If you are running windows vista please follow these instructions carefully.

  1. Click on "Start".
  2. Click on "All Programs".
  3. Click on "Accessories".
  4. Right click on the Command Prompt, select "run as administrator".
  5. At the prompt, type "regsvr32 vbscript.dll".
  6. You will now get a message box saying "vbscript.dll" has been registered.
  7. Reinstall QuickCam
I hope this helps. If not let us know.

SOURCE: logitech pro9000 QC software not working

Looks like a software issue. First, download the latest version of the driver from the Logitech site:
http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/435/3056&cl=us,en?WT.ac=sc|downloads||dd

Next, go to control panel and uninstall the software and reboot the system. Disconnect the camera and the do a clean install. (Different from regular installation). Not sure what your OS is, but here are the procedures I wrote for Vista and XP:
For VISTA
For WinXP (Dont worry if the article is meant for mice/keyboards, it is the same for cameras as well).

Follow the procedure exactly and the problem should be resolved. (It would be better to take a print out of the procedure)..

Let me know how it goes..

Cheers!

SOURCE: Video freezes on Skype with Logitech Quickcam Pro9000 webcam

Normal 0 See section A. Skype in the info below to setup the Audio & Video.
Also send this to your family and friends so they have their computer setup properly.
Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.
Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.
A. Skype Setup:
After downloading and installing Skype (http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/download/skype/windows/beta/downloading/) set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Tools, then Options, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if Installed Properly will come up and show a video picture.
  4. Then, on the bottom of the page click on Save.
The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now be able to see and her to you.
B. Yahoo Setup:
After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger (http://ca.messenger.yahoo.com/download/ ) set it up as follows:
  1. Click on Messenger at the top left and then go down to Preferences and then the Preference Window will come up.
  2. Next click on Calling and Devices. In the Calling & Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card or sound device installed in the computer.
  3. Just below that, go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.
  4. Then after completing the Audio Setup, on left panel, go to down and click on Super Webcam and click on Start Super Webcam Mode Automatically.
  5. Then click APPLY and then OK.
  6. Next click on MESSENGER and then click on MY WEBCAM and you camera should BRODCSAST and you will see your picture.
Hope this helps. Bud

SOURCE: WebCam is in use by another application

Copy this site and paste it in your browser address bar and hit ENTER.

http://download.cnet.com/ManyCam-Virtual-Webcam/3000-2348_4-10593500.html?tag=mncol

to your web browser and paste it in the Address Bar and hit ENTER.
Then download the program and install it to start having fun with your camera and friends.

Manycam allows you to use your Webcam with multiple programs at the same time. Broadcast your
Webcam on MSN Messenger, Yahoo!, Skype, AIM, Paltalk, and Camfrog all simultaneously. Manycam
also allows you to add cool live CGI (computer generated special effects and graphics) to your
Webcam. Make it appear as if your face or hand is on fire with our "fire" effect.
Pretend you are underwater or make it look like it's snowing inside your house with the
Manycam underwater and snow effects. Add text, graphics, or your country's flag to your video
window.

ManyCam is the freeware tool for you if you use both CamFrog and ICQ, or any other video chat
program, and you want to use them simultaneously. It creates a "virtual" Webcam that
replicates your currently installed camera. It then lets multiple applications
access the video stream without conflict.

ManyCam is compatible with Yahoo, MSN, CamFrog, PalTalk, ICQ, Skype, YouTube, and more. Once
you've installed ManyCam, you need to set ManyCam as the primary input for program that you
want to use. ManyCam will automatically start when you activate your Webcam through that
program. The application includes a bunch of gimmicky features that let you change aspects of
the background and foreground. You can map a new pair of cartoon eyes over your face, and they
track pretty well to your movements, or you can show that your life is hell by replacing the
background with flames.

NOTE: There is an unfortunate toolbar that will install unless you opt out during setup, but
other than that ManyCam is worthy of a Webcam Oscar for cool and useful tech.

Hope this is of some help. Bud

Cam loses focus on Skype


I have the same exact issue - however, it appeared. In order to understand whether it is the driver/os issue I moved my camera to a different computer - from Windows desktop to Mac laptop. And the issue still PERSISTS. I did not have the same problem in the past few months where I used the exact same setup and the same camera. Thus, it can be that the camera went bad (unlikely) or a Skype issue (likely). I think it might be related to the peer connection re-evaluation that happens in the "~30 sec" interval

Your OEM windows license is keyed to the mother board and the version.
To get legit: 1) First make SURE you have the driver for your network card(s) on a flash drive or disk 2) Google "windows 7 universal installer DVD x64". 3) Download and Burn DVD 4) Boot from DVD and install using the "key" from the sticker on the side of your computer. Entering the key during install is optional but will insure that the correct version gets installed. 5) Install/update drivers as needed. 6) Go to windows update and install all 7) reboot and go to #6 (4 to 10 times till no more updates show). 8) Install, flash, java, shockwave, reader, etc. 9) Activate windows. The OEM key will not "activate" with the online system. You will have to use the telephone method which is a PITA but it only takes 10 minutes.
Every computer I get gets this treatment. Get rid of all the demos and bloatware.

Remove the update the caused the problem in add remove programs, then update manually, or turn off auto update. You can also install and use firefox instead of IE or try doing a repair to IE. Usually IE updates to version 8 and it has problems - version 7 works fine. Uninstalling 8 changes it back to 7. Version 8 will not download properly on a lot of sites - they changed it so U have to use Windows explorer instead to download from FTP sites, and it will not connect to some sites due to all of the security they installed. You could try using default settings on security and turn off filters to see if that works. When windows updates IE it automatically changes to high security.

Try an older version and switch off auto update, the new version is too intrusive anyway, it installs it self everywhere in your computer.
I am using an older version and it works fine on my desktop and my wifes Eee PC 4G.
