If you need vista look here and pay attention to your model and rev or ver number.

On this page read the two technical FAQs at the bottom of the page -- the first is an error that may occur after install and may need fixed.

you will need Adobe Reader (free) to read the instructions
if you do not have it click the Get Adobe Reader button on the following link

If this seem appropriate there are vista drivers and instructions are on the following link near the bottom for the various cameras

Non-Vista downloads are at the following link (near the bottom)

All i have is the web cam H098063, what do i need to make it work?

Daniel, Do you have a laptop or a PC? I hope you have else the webcam is of no use. Let me assume that you have one. Now you must also have a CD of drivers that came along with the webcam. If not, then follow the link below and search for the correct drivers and download them. Once you have the PC/laptop, webcam and its drivers, now, you need to install the webcam drivers. To do that follow the link below on installing devices and install the device. Then, run an instant messenger, ie, MSN or Yahoo Messenger, or Google Talk or Skype or whatever you prefer. In the settings of that IM configure this webcam as the default camera to be used with the IM for Video Talk. And with the SW for the webcam, you can even make videos on the computer and take still pics as well.

My yahoo and webcam won't work together i keep getting an error message on yahoo, what do i do???

Test your webcam here to make sure it broadcasts ok - Hit 'Allow' in the top window and check your cam in the left hand panel.

Having proved your cam is working ,you can configure it to Yahoo Messenger.
Use Internet Explorer to visit this page to check compatibility and automatically download the latest webcam control

Its good practice to disconnect and re-connect your webcam before you start - if you have been using it elsewhere the Yahoo software may have difficulty in locating it. Mine, I just unplug it from the USB and plug it back in, if yours is integral with the computer you will have to re-start the computer, use a keyboard shortcut or disable / enable the webcam from the Device Manager.
Of all the chat programs, Yahoo is the most painful software to set up but if you follow these instructions you should be ok.

Webcam connected
Open messenger - on top toolbar. Left click ( > ) Messenger > Preferences > Connection - Select 'no proxies' or 'connect direct to the internet' depending on the version of messenger you have
make sure your internet connection and country are correct in the lower two boxes > Apply > OK

> Messenger > My webcam - the warning panel will launch, click 'OK' and your webcam will start. You should be rewarded at this stage with your happy smiling face.

With webcam still running > Messenger > Preferences > Webcam > Camera Source - set your webcam as default using dropbox. > Camera Settings - adjust settings to suit. > Apply > OK
Take a note of any additional software, if you have multiple choice for Camera Source, you may wish to uninstall any redundant webcam software later to prevent conflicts

> Messenger > Preferences > Webcam - make your selections ( who you will allow to view you) > Apply > OK
When you are both on line and wish to show your webcam > Actions > 'Invite to view my webcam'. This will launch an invitation on your contacts screen when they 'Accept' your webcam broadcast will start- There can be considerable time lag ( 1 minute) before they see you, so don't be too impatient ( You can check the status on the bottom left of your webcam panel. You can 'drag and drop' the frame to a convenient location by grabbing the top border.

Your contacts needs to configure their connection the same as above or they may get a "webcam not connected" message
