Re: do i need windows xp sp2 version

1st of all, u need to upgrade/update your WinXP to SP2 or higher, or else your quickcam driver won't support. Then get the latest driver from the Logitech website to install into your system.

Skype shuts down when I enable the video on Skype. I tried using an older version of Skype but still encounter the same problem, any ideas out there

With updating SKYPE your firewall must be updated as well.
Exit/Close your current Skype by clicking in system try Skype icon (down near the right corner green spot)
and choosing “Quit” from there if needed.
Open firewall, in programs, deletes Skype.
Run Skype and allow connecting
This also affects SP2 users who should follow above procedure.
With SP2 firewall.
Disabling external firewall will enable XP firewall by default.
So if you disable any other firewall XP firewall will now block your connections.
So remove Skype from XP firewall program list as well

Problem with running installation CD

If you explore the disk and find the exe. file you might be able to right click on it and click Properties. Sometimes there is a Compatibility tab that shows a list of Compatibility modes for older operating systems.
There is a chance that the camera won't fully function if you do this though so I would suggest you install Service Pack 2, as SP2 is basically the '2nd half' of xp, and will make installs much easier.

hope this helps

Creative Webcam Instant drivers for Vista

My wife has a new computer with Vista on it.  I tried to plug in my Creative Webcam Instant into it, thinking there would be no problems.  Turns out that Creative doesn't support Vista for a couple of its webcams.  I fixed it, though, and now there's no problems.  What you have to do is take advantage of a couple of Vista's less-obvious features.  Put the Creative CD in.  On the CD (not in a folder on the CD), there's a setup.exe.  Right-click it and select "Properties".  On the "Compatibility" tab, enable the option to run it in compatibility mode for XP SP2.  Then also check the "run as administrator" option, just for good measure.  After that, it will install just fine (otherwise, the Creative installer tells you that it doesn't support your version of Windows).  Then, after it installs, find the program's executable.  It should be in the relevant program files folder (if you're not sure, hover over the webcam center shortcut in the start menu, and see where the program is actually located).  Do the same thing for the program executable (right-click, compatibility tab, enable compatibility mode for XP SP2, enable running as admin for good measure).  If it doesn't work for you after all that, I don't know what to tell you.  It works just fine for me now (it didn't want to otherwise).
