I have a lifecam vx3000. i installed on my desktop with no flaws. When i installed it to my laptop, i get an error saying 'this version of messenger does not support video messaging' when i try to start a...


I think this is a driver issue. So make sure that if for instance you have VISTA on your other system and it worked fine with vista whereas on the lappy you got XP and you expected it to work tough luck! You got to make sure that you installed the proper driver for the OS. If you do not have this on the CD which came with it go to the lifecam vx3000 site and downlaod the driver suitable for your OS.

If still no luck with this I think I know what might solve the issue

1. Uninstall the webcam driver (from control panel ... add / remove hardware find webcam and remove)
2. Uninstall yet another time MSN Messenger
3. Disable any other built in webcam that you might have on the laptop from the device manager as you didnt say if the laptop already has a webcam built in
4. Download tunieup utilities install trial and run registry cleaner ... clean the whole registry for 2 - 3 times until its perfectly clean. Install the new driver you just downloaded
5 . Reboot
6. Install MSN Messenger
7. Reboot

Now see how that goes.
