Cant download new software

You should be able to use any webcam software. Webcam hardware is not typically linked to the software. I use my own webcam (Logitech) with Yahoo! IM, Skype and Windows Live using the native drivers that came with the webcam. That said, there may be a Microsoft version that works better with Windows Live in conjunction with your vx1000.
