5. Connect the webcam's USB cable to an available USB port on your computer and wait for Windows to detect the device.
6. When the Found New Hardware Wizard dialog box appears, select Install the software automatically (Recommended), and then click the Next button.

10. Click the Finish botton, and reboot if necessary.
When you boot up, you can check the Device Manager (Control Panel > System > Device Manager). Click the plus(+) sign next to the Imaging Device icon. The entry "Vibra Webcam" should appear.

Done!
