You are not alone with Harmony woes; take a look here:

This brief exchange will redirect you to two other forums where you might find some help.

Logitech also has extensive forums where you should find solutions.

I don't have Vista available to check but I would also suggest you open Vista Help and search on:

compatibility

All versions of Win have had problems with older drivers but later versions have method of 'fooling' the OS into think it is two generations old.

Can not get Adobe PhotoDeluxe2.0 to install on windows 7. Worked fine on Vista


Adobe Photo Deluxe is an older program that does not seem to be compatible with Windows 7. you should contact Adobe to see if they have an updated version.

However, you can try the following to see if it will help.
If the program is not compatible, then you may try to install and run the program in compatibility mode.
Use the following steps:
1)Right click on the Program
2)Click on Properties
3)Click on Compatibility tab
4)Select Run this program in compatibility mode and select Windows Vista or whatever operating system the program was running successfully.
Refer to the link here: Make older programs run in this version of Windows

Microsoft Vista will not support my older logitech program plese helpt


Hello,
How about checking with Logitech if they have a vista software for the device?

Just a suggestion. It's more likely that they could configure their software for vista than vista to accept the older software.

Thanks,
Lolita

Not wroking on my windows 7 ultimate


Neither Logitech nor Microsoft wrote drivers for this webcam for Windows 7.

As a result, it is not supported by Windows 7 and will most likely never be supported.

It's my suspicion that Microsoft gets kick-backs for not supporting old hardware so the peripheral makers can make money selling new equipment.

I have a webcam c500 have installed all the software and cant get the toolbar to come up.the one with effects and so on. all i get is the page with webcam pic or vid abd the buttons at the bottom for skype...


The amount of tools on your toolbar or dashboard is limited by your OS. The older the OS the less features you have.
From the top I have (Vista)
Quick Capture - (2 film frames)
Video Effects - ( 2 theatre masks)
Privacy shades - (window blind)
Settings- (2 gearwheels)
Video calling ( 2 head and shoulders)
Help (Question Mark)
Microphone/ Video mute ( mic & cam)
Logitech Homepage ( Logitech logo)

You should check your DirectX program and maybe download the software from the site
Visit the Logitech website and browse the photo gallery for your model and click on the photo to navigate to the support page.
Note - Older models on page 2 - look for the link at the bottom right of page 1 and click on it "Still can't find your product?"

http://www.logitech.com/index.cfm/405/&cl=us,en?prodcrid=405

In addition to the Logitech installer you will need to check the support software - Microsoft DirectX . This comes pre-loaded on most Windows computers but has to be updated - I am currently on version 11
To start the DirectX Diagnostic Tool, click 'Start', click 'Run', type dxdiag in the Open box, and then click OK
Run through the tabs checking the 'notes' windows for information
The version will be shown on the 'Systems' tab

Procedure to re-install Logitech software
Close all programs while uninstalling - downloading and uploading software
Disconnect your webcam
Uninstall the current webcam software on your computer
Restart computer
Download the Installation package from Logitech
Run the installer and choose your options during the installation - You may not want Logitech Chat but the Desktop icon for the webcam toolbar is a must.
Connect your webcam when prompted.

Microsoft Outlook '07 repeatedly crashing & restarting on its own.


If this a new problem try doing a restore to a date previous date where it worked. vista 64 does have problem in that not all older programs work with it and if they do they have bugs that cause your type of problem. My transfer to vista 64 was racked with your type of frustrations, but I have worked through most of them and have learned to work around the others. Update often because microsoft and others know there are  problems and they do want this system to work for everyone.  New updates come when complaints are made. Complain!
