Hp Webcam with Integrated Camera (Product number PG088AA) compatible with vista?

I'm looking for the vista drivers for this camera (Hp Webcam with Integrated Camera - Product number PG088AA).

I've tried downloading it from but the install always fails at 60% with an error stating only "Error 2". When I click ok on the error message the install jumps to 80% and then closes.

I've tried running it as an admin and still have the same problem. I've found a few people saying it's incompatible with Vista and a few saying that it definitely works.

Can anyone clear this up for me? Does this camera work with vista? Or is it incompatible?

    HP admitted to me today their patches weren't for Vista and wouldn't fix the problem but - for $49 for 14 days of service - their technicians would direct you to websites where patches were available - nice guys huh?

This is the website where I found XP drivers: I do not believe there are Vista drivers for this webcam.

Driver instalation doesn't work in Windows Vista Ultimate

Make sure the drivers you have are compatible with Windows Vista. Since Microsoft ceased any and all support for that Windows OS it's hard to find anything for Vista or XP. Type in your webcam maker's name and camera model number followed by: 'drivers for Vista' into your favorite search engine box.

No Vista support

I have been looking on philips website for Windows Vista drivers for your camera and i'm having very low luck in finding the drivers.

I don't think they have any which are compatible with your webcam. You could keep on looking back just incase they have some.

Good luck.
