Normal 0 Did you install the software with the camera connected to the computer? Disconnect the camera from the USB port and reinstall the software. When the program asks you to connect the camera, do so, and it should work. Hope this is of some help. Bud

Below is info for setting up Audio & Video to chat on line after you install , either Skype or a messenger program.


Web Camera’s have to be setup on the program they are to be used with. Just installing the camera on your computer does not set it up to broadcast on messengers or Skype.

Each program has Options that have to be setup in order for the Audio and Video to function properly.

A. Skype Setup:

After downloading and installing Skype set it up as follows:

  1. Go to TOOLS, then OPTIONS, and click on Audio Settings and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  2. Then click on the Video Settings.
  3. The camera if installed properly will come up and show a picture.
  4. Then on the bottom of the page click on Save.

The camera and audio should function properly. Your friends and Family will now see and talk to you.

B. Yahoo Setup:

After downloading and installing Yahoo Messenger set it up as follows:

  1. Go to Messenger at the top left and click on it.
  2. Next go down to Preferences and click on it.
  3. Next Calling and Devices on the right and set the Microphone and Speakers to the computer Audio Card.
  4. Next go to the Test Audio section and (in blue writing) click on “Open the call setup assistant” and follow the instructions on the left window.

C. Windows Live Messenger:

  1. After you start Windows Live Messenger, expand the view by clicking on the square on top left next to the red X.
  2. Then on the Windows Live messenger window on the right side, click on “ “Show Menus.” And then click on “Show the Menu Bar”.
  3. Next go to the Menu Bar on right side, click on “ “Action.”
  4. Go to “TOOLS” and click “Audio and Video Setting” and follow the instructions.
NOTE: You audio and video shoud work. Enjoy.

When done both the Audio and Video will function properly so you can chat and see family or friends you are connected to.
Hope this helps. Bud

Cant open links


Henry,

You will need to have the program installed on your computer to open the file that you are wanting to open. For ex. If you were sent a word file and you go to open it you would get an error saying the file does not have a program associated with it to open it. You would need to install Word to open the file. What is the file or file ext. you are trying to open?

Thank You,

ERROR MESSAGE


> this file does not have a program associated with it

Vista should say "choose a program from the following list". Correct?
Choose Internet Explorer, and check the "always use this program' box.

When i tried to open the file it says ''this file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Creat an association in the Set Associations control panel''.


Each Windows Operating System, 98, NT, 2000, XP, Vista and Windows 7 associate files with programs. This means that the file will open with that program each time it is clicked on.
The error indicates that the file type does not have a program associated with it.
1. You do not have the program it is looking for loaded on the system
2. The program is installed but the association is broken

Google can help you with locating the program you need to open the file type you are looking for.
1. Make sure your system is showing you the extension for the file. This is the three letters following the period at the end of the file name. Example MyLetter.doc: doc is the extension.
2. Go to Google and type in a search for that extension. Example:type File extension flv, in a Google search. Notice, no period is used in the search.
3. Look in the results summary for the words Open an flv file (in your case you would substitute your extension)
4. Download and install the program associated with the file.

Need to set an association to open a file


The first thing that you have to find out is what type of file is it. Normally if the file is not associated with any program on the computer then that means that the program is not installed. To find out the type of program that it is you can go to the link below then check the file extention. The file extention by the way is the letters after the period in the filename. EX. hello.DOC the capital letters is the file extention
