Aspire 5610-2762 Orbicam not working

I receive an error stating :
ACER ORBICAM APPLICATION HAS STOPPED WORKING

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. windows will close the program notify you if a solution is available. Close Program.

I do not use messenger so it is not due to this being downloaded. There is nothing on the Acer troubleshooting and technical support to help with this.

Thanks!!

My orbicam can't open anymore. When i check instalation, it only says uninstall the program! My acer orbit cam program was deleted by mistake

Try performing uninstall from control panel, even if the program is corrupted. Then install it again using the recovery disk or downloading it.

hope it can help

Hi,

Ready for this, goto to start>my pictures and remove all images from that folder except for the samples folder, just create another folder in your documents for these images.

Now start the webcam up again.

Sounds stupid but it works.

Cheers

** Note ** When the My Pictures or Pictures folder gets full, camera will not work - Cut and Paste all pictures in that folder to another folder and restart Orbicam program.

If that does not work then do this:

Start - Programs - look for Acer Empowering Technology then Acer E-Recovery - The look at the bottom and you will "Backup", "Burn disk" and Restore" choose Restore - choose Apps and Drivers at the bottom of Restore tab (it will say extracting) - once extracted - click Install - click Vista or (XP) on the left - click Drivers - click Camera or CCD - on the right side of the screen, click a phrase that has something like "Install now", follow on screen instructions.
