Hi, Make sure you are not running the Desktop Icon program first. The camera can only be used by one program at a time. Now login to Messenger, and click Tools > Audio and Video Setup, and click Next past the audio settings, and choose USB Video Device from the list. It should work after a couple of seconds. If that doesn't work, try the other device drivers from the list, waiting a couple of seconds each time, until you can see some output in the window. Then apply and you're ready to go. It's the same deal with Skype, except it's in Tools > Options > Audio Settings.
