Question about Dell Inspiron Computers & Internet
Posted by Anonymous on
The drivers, made for older windows versions, won't work on a Windows 7 or up machine. Not even in compatibility mode. Microsoft needed to make Windows more secure, so only allows drivers in there modern operating systems when they have a Microsoft certificate. For a certificate the manufactures must use Microsoft protocols, ask Microsoft for certification, and pay for the tests Microsoft does, to check the software is working correct. So no manufacturer will ask for certification of drivers for hardware they no longer sell.
Long story, but unless you can write your driver yourself, or you can find an universal camera driver (not sure something like that exists) you won't be able to use the camera. Nobody does tell you, after you update your OS you also have to buy new hardware to.
