Hello delaney_asia,

If you don't have a crystal eye webcam shortcut on your desktop then do the following:

•Click Start (lower left-hand of screen)
•Select Run
•Copy and paste this in the Run window (include quotation marks):
"C:\Program Files\ACER Crystal Eye webcam\Acer Crystal Eye webcam.exe"
•Click ok

The Crystal Eye webcam will become activated

Have a great day,

  • Sylvia Hello. I tried the above and it doesn't work for me. My webcam has been deactivated or suppressed and I downloaded but ti still doesn't show in my 'Devices and Printers' icons and it doesn't show up with your suggested method. Any other ideas? Many thanks in advance.

There seems to be a problem with the Crystal Eye Cam driver on the Acer Aspires when running Vista. Here are some links to the drivers:

When I tried to open the camcorder part of the web cam, the program wouldnt open. I uninstalled and tried to reinstall without success. Do i need to install another program in order for it to work?
