Consider NOT using a driver.
The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program, such as Picasa.

This is a free driver solutions.
This will automatically search for and find the correct driver.
You will have to update every driver individually once you update. You might be
asked whether you want to restart or make a system restore. Point click no to both of these, then continue updating each driver free, then restart once all of the drivers have been updated.
Some webcams and programs require additional software, although that should be installed with the webcam if things are right. But it doesn\'t hurt to check if your Java, Flash and Quicktime software are installed and up to date.
But certainly check your DirectX software, since all video applications, including
webcams, use DirectX for video processing. Try downloading the latest DirectX version and install it (Windows XP: DirectX 9.0c Windows Vista: DirectX 10).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Which-version-of-DirectX-is-on-your-computer
If you still have no webcam installed, Run the "Add a device"application, accessed by clicking on the "Start" button, opening the "Control Panel," and then double-clicking on "Add a device."
The "Add a device" window will open and Windows will search for devices connected to your system but not installed.
Click on the webcam name that shows in the search box and
then click "Next."
Choose whether you want Windows to search for the webcam
device driver using Windows Update over the Internet, or if you\'d prefer to
have the device manager search for the driver using a disc supplied by your
laptop manufacturer. Most drivers can be found on the system recovery disc
included with your laptop, if you choose to add the driver from the provided disc.
Place a check in the box next to your choice and then click "Next" to continue.
Wait while Windows searches from the driver using Windows
Update, if this was your choice.
An active Internet connection is required for Windows to
successfully do this. Allow the computer to install the driver and then reboot
the system for the webcam to become recognized by the system.
Otherwise, you can use the system recovery disc or a driver
downloaded directly from your laptop manufacturer to install the driver without
using the Windows Update search feature.
Open the CD/DVD-ROM drive and insert the system recovery
disc, or place the driver downloaded from the manufacturer in an easily
accessed file directory on your PC, such as on the desktop, or in your "My
Documents" folder.
Choose the option "Install the software automatically
(Recommended)" in the "Add a device" application, and press
"Next" to begin searching for your webcam driver.
The hardware wizard will search the system recovery disc and
install the driver automatically. Press "Finish" to close the wizard
and then reboot the computer to allow recognition of the webcam.
Choose the option "Install the software manually"
in order to browse to the driver location where you saved the driver and
install it from there.
Use the opened file manager and locate the driver.
Click the "Next" button to install the
driver, then reboot the computer to add webcam functionality.

If you are having a problem installing a product that uses InstallShield as their installation tool, and the steps below do not resolve your issue, you will need to contact the vendor of the software, as we cannot provide further support. Your vendor, who used InstallShield as an installation tool, created the product that you are trying to install. It is very likely that the error you are getting is related to how the vendor used our product and only the vendor would know which InstallShield product they used, which version and how they programmed it. Thank you for your understanding and patience.

This article applies to the following errors when trying to install an application that uses InstallShield:

Error extracting support files
Error installing Ikernel.exe (0x any number)
Access is denied
Error loading Type Library/DLL

Discussion

Detect Version
Different troubleshooting steps are necessary for different version of InstallShield. To check the version of InstallShield Professional that was used to create the setup, take the following steps:

1.Right-click on the setup.exe
2.Select "Properties".
3.In the Properties dialog, select the tab labeled "Version".
4.Near the top there will be a filed labeled "File Version". The number specified here will tell you approximately what version of InstallShield was used to create this install.

InstallShield 5.x and 3.x
If the version of InstallShield is less than 6.00, see article Q100198, HOWTO: Eliminating General Setup Initialization Errors.

InstallShield 6.x
If the version is 6.00 or greater, continue with the following steps.

Setup initialization errors can be caused by a number of factors. This is a non-exhaustive list of possible resolutions:

1.Insufficient permissions on the machine. If you are using a Windows NT or a Windows 2000 machine, you need to have administrative permissions to run an InstallShield Professional 6.x setup. Make sure you have the correct permissions.

2.If you just ran an InstallShield setup, the engine takes a few seconds at the end of the installation to clean up. During this time Ikernel.exe (the engine file) is running in memory from a previous process. That is why you are not allowed to launch another setup. Waiting a few seconds and running the setup again should resolve this.

3.Check and make sure Ikernel.exe is not in memory. If it is, and no setup is running at the time, end that task and restart the system.

4.Clean out the Temp directory.

5.Delete the Program Files\Common Files\InstallShield\Engine folder and then rerun the setup.

6.Reinstalling Internet Explorer (IE) 5.x can also repair a number of corrupted/missing core Windows files from your machine, so reinstalling IE 5.x and the NT service pack is also suggested.

7.Another possibility is that you do not have sufficient COM permissions. For information on how to troubleshoot this, see article Q104986, INFO: Initialization Error Troubleshooting.

8.The other potential cause is a missing Stdole.tlb file. This is a core Windows file and should exist on your machine. Make sure that if you get this file from another machine, the machine is running the same operation system as the machine you are trying to run the setup on.

9.If you are trying to install to a Windows 98 machine, download and run Dcom98.exe from the following site: http://www.microsoft.com/com/dcom/dcom98/download.asp.

10.Make sure that you are using the latest version of the InstallShield engine. To install the latest engine see article Q105097, INFO: Install the Latest Version of Ikernel.exe

Hi,

If you are using XP you don't need install drivers as the camera will be deetected as a mass storage device when attached to the computer. Then you can cut/copy paste the pics from your camera to your computer. If you are using Windows 98 then you need to install a driver.

Sanyo VPC-s500 i cant get it to install drivers or find them so i can upload pictures to my computer


The simple solution to this problem is that no drivers are required. This camera is treated as a removable (secondary) drive just as if it was a USB thumb drive or external hard drive.
First go to settings on the camera by rotating the dial to the wrench icon.
Turn the camera on and select Set-Up 2
Select USB
Select PC
Your camera is now ready to use with your computer.
Now plug your camera into your computer and check under My Computer for the drive to show. You can now copy files over to your computer from the camera.
If the drive isn't showing you'll have to go into Disk Management to view it
Disk Management is under Administrartive Tools located in your Control Panel (or Start Menu if you have it set to show there)
Select Administrative Tools
Computer Management
On the left hand side click Disk Management (or on the right click Storage then Disk Management)
Finally you can now Right Click the cameras drive and chose Open
