It's probably too old for win 7. You may have to get an updated version of the simulator software.

I need help on installing logitech quickcam v-ugb35 with windows 7 Ult


If your windows 7 system is set up as 32 bit instead of 64, that's why it doesn't work. according to the logitech website that camera will only work with windows 7 in 64 bit mode...otherwise it won't.

It has DINPUT.dll error


Dinput.dll errors usually appear when a game or other software program is started. and are caused in one way or another by an issue with Microsoft DirectX.

The dinput.dll file is one of many files contained in the DirectX software collection. Since DirectX is utilized by most Windows based games and advanced graphics programs, dinput.dll errors usually show up only when using these programs.

Solutions:

1. For Dinput.dll not found. Reinstalling Direct X should fix this.

2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the dinput.dll not found error.

Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX 11, DirectX 10, and DirectX 9 files, but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the dinput.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

Uninstall the game or software program and then reinstall it again. Something might have happened to the program files that work with dinput.dll and a reinstall could do the trick.

Restore the dinput.dll file from the latest DirectX software package. If the above troubleshooting steps haven't worked to solve your dinput.dll error, try extracting the dinput.dll individually from the DirectX downloadable package.

4. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.

Here is a good link for DirectX info on how to download and install:

I have Zotac nvidia 8400GS 1GB DDR3 Graphic card i installed Directx 10 in my Computer (windowsXP-32-bit) but it shows pixel shader 3.0 and vertex shader 3.0 version Instead of 4.0 version Why it's...


Hi rajivqupta19,
DirectX 10 won't be compatible with earlier DirectX versions, and it won't be released for Windows XP. For backward compatibility with current games and hardware, Microsoft plans to include DirectX 9L in Windows Vista.
You can have a DX10 card in XP but you won't be able to use any of the DX10 features and optimization.
DX10 Windows Vista Exclusive according to the link below.
Additional Info Link
Shader 4.0 is for Windows Vista.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for Using FixYa.

I install today the least version of messenger11. after i install i cannot open my yahoo messger... it said cannot d3d9.dl cannot locate... i already retry to install but its the same problem what should...


If you've already downloaded d3d9.dll from one of those DLL download sites, remove it from wherever you put it and continue with these steps.
  1. Restart your computer if you haven't yet.

    The d3d9.dll error might be a fluke and a simple restart could clear it up completely.

  2. Install the latest version of Microsoft DirectX. Chances are, upgrading to the latest version of DirectX will fix the d3d9.dll not found error.

    Note: Microsoft often releases updates to DirectX without updating the version number or letter so be sure to install the latest release even if your version is technically the same.

    Note: The latest version of DirectX should be installed no matter if you're running Windows 7, Windows Vista, or Windows XP. The installation may include DirectX10 and DirectX9 files but they run side-by-side without problem on all of these operating systems.

  3. Assuming the latest DirectX version from Microsoft doesn't fix the d3d9.dll error you're receiving, look for a DirectX installation program on your game or application CD or DVD. Usually, if a game or other program utilizes DirectX, the software developers will include a copy of DirectX on the installation disc.

    Sometimes, though not often, the DirectX version included on the disc is a better fit for the program than the latest version available online.

  6. Update the drivers for your video card. While it's not the most common solution, in some situations updating the drivers for the video card in your computer could correct this DirectX issue.
Applies ToThe d3d9.dll error message could apply to any program that utilizes Microsoft DirectX, most commonly video games. Any of Microsoft's operating systems since Windows 98 may be effected by d3d9.dll and other DirectX issues. This includes Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows XP, and Windows 2000.
