Nx-6000: no image under Vista

After installing the lifecam under Vista, it worked but only for few days. Now audio is still ok but I get a blank screen as image. No driver error is reported, I tried also to connect the camera to a different usb port and change settings but nothing ! .

It turns out you need to go to Microsoft's hardware download page and download the full (117MB!) driver and software for this neat camera. The software will ask you to install Microsoft Live (aka MSN Messenger), but you don't have to.
When you see the dialog boxes that explain, setup, and test your camera and microphone - you got it!
Be sure to select the camera from the Skype options/video setup page, and all the other options. Be sure to start you camera if you had set it up such that it does not start automatically.

Microsoft live webcam shows error msg


I have a Work-A-Round so that the end result will provide both sound and
Video using the LifeCam NX-6000 with Windows Live on a
Windows Vista ULtimate 64 bit system, please post your system if
this solution works for you.

I guessed that the error messages, the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH, and
a long list of conflicts that I discovered with this camera shown that
the sound was conflicting with the video.

Overview
I used manycam for the video and I configured Windows Live to handle sound.
I assume that you can get it to work as long as you split the video and sound
on two different programs.

What I did
I installed the vista driver
http://www.microsoft.com/hardware/download/DownloadResult.aspx?category=ICE&type=Webcams&name=NX6000&os=WVista_32&lang=en
I installed windows live 8.1 (I did configure until after ManyCams)
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=d78f2ff1-79ea-4066-8ba0-ddbed94864fc&displaylang=en
I installed ManyCams
ManyCam Virtual Webcam 2.3.21
http://www.download.com/ManyCam-Virtual-Webcam/3000-2348_4-10593500.html

Configuration
I started ManyCams and configured it to (optionally start on boot) and to
USE LIFECAM NX-6000 as the source.
I then started Windows 8.1 Start > Tools > Audio and Video setup
and configured it to use my
(1) speakers for output sound (Realtek HD Audio) [next]
(2) Microphone Microsoft Lifecam NX-6000 [next]
(3) ManyCam Virtual Webcam [finish]

Reboot, start ManyCam and then start Windows live.

If your still having issues, you may try to disable this service and try again
using the following instructions.
start -> run -> services.msc
then go to Messenger Sharing Folders USN Journal Reader service
click on proprieties and disable it

Ok, thats is what I did and I truly hope that it helps you.
