let me know if you still have a problem
PLEASE don't forget to rate me
In msn live click on show menu then tools option for cam setup
If that don't work click again show menu then actions then video then show my webcam or start video conversation.
If taht does'nt work then I would assume it's something in your camera setup itself
This might be a compatibility problem between your webcam drivers with the new Windows Live Messenger program. You may want to:
1. Update your webcam drivers and see if Windows Live Messenger can detect it when you run the Audio Video setup from its Tools menu.
2. Or you can downgrade back to the older version of Windows Live Messenger which is compatible for your camera. Doing this however also requires that you uninstall all the Windows Live Beta products from your computer.
Note: You will not see a separate Windows Live Messenger on your Add/Remove programs, instead you will either see there Windows Live Beta products or Windows Live Essentials.
You can download the older versions of Windows Live Messenger from:
First of all, have you verified you are using latest version of MSN messenger. If so and the problem still exists, give one of the other instant messengers a try, say like YM or AIM or any number of others.
What exactly do you mean by ' seems to work '?? Can you see yourself in the cam using whatever software other then MSN that you may have on your computer.
uninstall all of programs you use to install your camera. After the uninstall plug your camera in and wait for the system to ask for your drivers, load your drivers and reboot your machine. If your drivers can run in a 16 bit emulation on a 32 bit emulation then you are good to go, if not well welcome to the world of vista.
