Laptop webcam won't connect to MSN Messenger

Every time I try to connect to MSN messenger on my laptop it gives me, My name ''has canceled the invitation to start viewing webcam.''
I've tried so many different solutions listed on the internet and nothing is working. I have no idea what the problem is, but nothing seems to be working... updating drivers, reinstalling program, changing ''location'' listed on my profile, etc. etc.
Can anyone help?

    we tried that and it didn't work.
    checked firewall, it's not blocking.
    tried different drivers, nothing worked.
    tried changing our "location" as was suggested on other sites, but didn't work.
    webcam works with programs on the computer, so we know it's working.. but won't work with msn messenger.

Two things I would check.

First, either go into an application and see if you can pull an image from the webcam as a twain source or go into your cam software and ensure that it can be accessed for video. If something is using your camera, MSN won't be able to access it. Software can do this as can worms and virus that try and hijack your camera. It will also happen if the camera is not being properly detected by the system.

Second, once you have confirmed the camera works, ensure that the software is configured correctly and that you have not set MSN messenger to auto-decline requests to share video.

Looking for a tool that would allow me to connect MSN messenger and facebook. Is it even possible?


Sure. I know what you look for. The apps name is 'MSN Messenger Button'.For MSN / Windows Live Messenger users, this application lets them add an MSN Messenger Button to their Facebook profile page. It allows contacts to add users to their MSN Messenger contacts. It also lets users find out who among their Facebook friends are using MSN Messenger and allows them to be added as contacts. In addition, this application also lets users chat with MSN Messenger friends right on their Facebook profile.

How do i know when my friends have me block or are on invisible while they online?


There are various web application that is able to reveal invisible Yahoo Messenger user, XEEBER and Invisible scanner are the better ones in the market, its free!As for MSN Messenger, there is only one tool available, the Show Invisible MSN Messenger Status detector, it reveals, finds, and detects you and your contact lists MSN information and inform you all you want to know about your contacts. For example which person deleted or blocked you.

For those who are curious about which of his/her friends deleted or blocked them, do give the service a try but be cautious, I believe the tool is meant to be some sort of email harvesting application or another email hijacking tool created by spammers. Give it a try but remember to change your password as soon as you’re done with it.
Rule number one, never reveal your password to other company besides the original service provider.

Here is a cool little MSN Name Trick that allows you to have an invisible MSN Screen Name. This nickname trick should work for most versions of Messenger (ie MSN 6, 7.5, 8.0). Just follow these instructions:
  • Open the Options window so you can change your MSN Name
  • Hold down ALT on your keyboard and type in 0160 using the Numeric Keypad (usually on the right side of your keyboard)
  • Click OK to save your new Invisible MSN Name!

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


if you have the webcam center opened along with with msn then it wont work on either one of them.
you can try these steps tp check if it works for you or not.

1)look for the web cam center system tray icon and right click on it if its there and select exit

and as u said u cant see you self in web cam console --- in webcam console you can only see your self under the doodling tab and only of your webcam is working at that i.e

either you have the webcam center opened or any other messenger or software which turns on your cam then only ull be able to view your cam in webcam console alongside.

Webcam working ok with yahoo test but when i go to messanger then viue webcam it comes up not connected i have done some thing wrong can you help please


If you are trying to run both at the same time, you cannot do that for some reason. The connection of your webcam to one blocks the connection with the other.
If you are just trying to run it on messenger, which i am assuming is msn or live messenger, you have to run the connection set up for the messenger itself. I believe that it can be found in the settings menu.

Dell webcam manager working with msn messenger?


as ive told others, make sure u actually turn off the software program that came with the computer before using with msn! u should be able to have it on while using it but for some reason some computers wont allow it! it "tells itself" that there are 2 programs trying to run the web cam when really only one is.
but because the program is on, it sees it as being used in 2 places at 2 different times!

try turning off and exiting the software (dell webcam manager) and then go onto msn and try using ur web cam!! make sure the dell manager is exited, then when u have a msn window open, turn the cam on and see if ur friends can see u then..

good luck..
if this doesnt work ill check back and see what i can do for you!

Cant sign in to MSN Messenger it says Temporary Problem when i check the service site it says its running think i deleted a file


Hi there, my name is Alex and I am here to help solve your problem

A common problem to signing in to MSN Messenger is the date and time set incorrectly. You can locate this at the bottom right hand corner of the desktop. After setting the time and date correctly, you should be able to sign in without problem.

If Messenger gives problems and the date and time are both set correctly, exit MSN Messenger and exit the icon which is located in the system bar (next to the time and date) and then open MSN Messenger again.

I hope this problem helps..... If you have any questions or more problems, please feel free to ask me.
